Swansea boss Monk not reading into Bergkamp, Koeman, Jones links

Swansea City caretaker manager Garry Monk says he is not worried about the fact there are others being linked with his current position.

The 34-year old defender has temporarily taken the reins at the Liberty Stadium following the recent sacking of Michael Laudrup and his position has already attracted a trio of names.

Former Arsenal star Dennis Bergkamp, current assistant at Ajax, Feyenoord boss Ronald Koeman and Everton number two Graeme Jones are all linked with the Swansea role but Monk insists he is not too concerned.

"It doesn't bother me. You could be in this job for 20 years and people would still be getting linked," he said of Wednesday's trip to Stoke City.

"That's part of football. It happens with players, with managers and even with owners.

"You just get on with the job and for me that means focusing on Stoke City. The only way I can work right now is by focusing on the next game."
