Garry Monk: Former Swansea City manager in Leeds United talks

Garry Monk has vowed to roll up his sleeves in a bid to arrest Swansea’s slide following their 1-0 defeat to Stoke on Monday evening.

An early penalty from Bojan earned the Potters all three points as Monk’s men made it six games without a win in all competitions to drop to 14th place in the table.

Jonjo Shelvey did strike a post in the second half, but Swansea laboured for large parts of the game and their search for an equaliser was often unconvincing.

“We’re in a difficult moment because we’re not quite at the levels we need to be,” Monk said.

“That’s disappointing because we all know how capable this group of players are and the football we can produce.

“But it’s for me to work with the players, we need to work hard together and stick together and get back to the levels which we know this team can produce.

“We’ve been in difficult moments but we have to work through it.

“I’d be lying if I said I was not concerned, but I’m not overly concerned.

“We went five games last season without winning and everyone said that was a difficult period and we ended up having a fantastic season.”
