Everton boss Martinez lauds Swansea caretaker boss Monk

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has been commenting on Swansea head coach Garry Monk, who was captain at the Swans under Martinez's management. "I built a squad around him, he was the perfect captain. It is a nice twist to see him in the dugout.

"He had that leadership, that DNA of being able to control a group. Being a captain in a club like Swansea where so involved with the community, it prepares you for that.

"Garry always responded very well. Last few months, he has been able to look around from a distance and get a good method of work. It didn't surprise me.

"Garry has always been a responsible character in the dressing room. He doesn't need any advice. He is very thorough and knows exactly what he wants. He has a real respect from the club and that is vital."
