Swansea boss Monk refuses to talk down Laudrup era after winning debut

Swansea City boss Garry Monk refused to rubbish predecessor Michael Laudrup after victory over Cardiff City.

Monk was clear on what he believes Swansea's principles to be, but was keen to stress Laudrup's time in south Wales will never be forgotten.

"For me, with Michael, I have massive respect for him," he said. "You don't do something like finishing ninth and winning the first major honour in the club's history without earning massive respect and we will never forget that.

"We will always respect him and have him in our minds but in terms of the fact he has gone then I suppose we do have to move on, but we never forget people who have brought stuff to the club."
