Garry Monk: Plenty of issues for new Leeds United boss to address

Garry Monk is expected to remain in charge of Swansea for their next Premier League match against Bournemouth after a senior figure at the club expressed surprise at sack talk surrounding the manager.

However, the BBC claims the result of that game could have a significant impact on his future following reports that Monk is set to be sacked  as manager.

Swansea’s 1-0 defeat at Norwich saw them drop to 14th – five points above the Premier League’s relegation zone.

A senior figure at Swansea City has told BBC Wales Sport of his “surprise” about the reports.

And the manager still has the support of the players according to goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski

“Yes, no question about it,” said the Poland international.

The defeat at Carrow Road on Saturday means Monk’s side have won only once in the league since August.

Swansea dominated possession against Norwich but were caught out in the 70th minute when Jonny Howson headed in from short range following a corner.

Monk, 36, says the Swans have to fight their way out of their current poor run of form and Fabianski says the team have to “stick together”.

“At the moment it’s not going well for us,” Fabianski added.

“We need to regroup and try and bounce back as quickly as we can.

“We have to continue to work hard and we’ve got to stick together as a group.

“Hopefully we will be able to bounce back quickly.”

Poland goalkeeper Fabianksi hopes the international break will be an opportunity for Swansea to regroup ahead of the home game with Bournemouth on 21 November.

Bournemouth slipped into the bottom three after defeat at home to Newcastle United and Eddie Howe’s side have gone six league games without a win.

The Swans are odds-on to beat the Cherries when they clash at the Liberty Stadium on November 21.

“Hopefully it will be a good break for us and we’ll come back stronger,” Fabianski added.

“I’m hoping we can go on a good run and get some good results.”
