Rangel: Monk has Swansea bouncing again

Swansea City fullback Angel Rangel feels manager Garry Monk has brought a fresh confidence to the squad.

Rangel shares his manager's confidence, having noticed a healthy "arrogance" on the pitch since Monk took over from Michael Laudrup four weeks ago.

"We know that with recharged batteries we will be fit for the remaining 10 games and hopefully we'll get as many wins as possible," the Spaniard said.

"You can say that the tempo of our game is a lot higher. We are going back to the Swansea way, I would say, and obviously we were missing that.

"The results haven't been great for us, but when you play good games obviously the results are going to come. We are confident and we do believe we can achieve it.

"I think we've played over 40 games already now and the last 10 games are going to physically and mentally be hard for us, but we've always shown that, when we're under pressure and we need wins, we get them.

"Now is the moment that we have to show that we're a good team. We want to stay up, so we've got no choice really. We have to give everything until the end and I think we've got enough arrogance and quality to stay up."
