Garry Monk has played down the ongoing speculation over his future as Swansea manager, by insisting the performance at Liverpool shows the players are ‘fighting for him’.
Defeat at Anfield may have not done much for Swansea’s poor run of results which now extends to one win since the end of August but the performance encouraged under-pressure manager Monk, who rejected accusations the players were not delivering for him.
“Anyone who suggests that would be very stupid,” he said.
“I never have any doubt in these players and how good they are, what they are capable of.
“We have worked hard to put a week of working into these players but unfortunately like every team you go through a difficult period.
“Of course results are the be-all and end-all, we have to get points on the board but if you perform like that with those principles and work ethic you have confidence results will begin to pick up real soon.
“It is my responsibility to get results and I understand that and you can’t continue to not get points.
“It is only a matter of time before results turn and you will see us flying again.”
