Swansea boss Monk: Rodgers, Martinez helped derby preparation

Swansea City boss Garry Monk highlighted the support he received ahead of yesterday's debut win over Cardiff City.

Ex-Swansea managers Brendan Rodgers and Roberto Martinez, now in charge of Merseyside heavyweights Liverpool and Everton, had provided Monk with astute guidance as he prepared for his first game in charge.

"I spoke to Brendan, I spoke to Roberto and I spoke to Kenny Jackett. All people who have been here," he said.

"The support I have had here has been magnificent. They gave me advice which I will keep to myself, but they are guys at the very top of their game and when they are giving you good advice and wishing you well and giving you little bits and bobs it can only help."
