London - Garry Monk has been sacked as manager of Swansea
City following a run of one win in 11 Premier League games, the Welsh club
announced on Wednesday.
Monk, 36, led Swansea to an eighth-place finish last season
in his first full campaign at the helm, but he has paid the price for a run of
results that has left the club a point above the relegation zone.

"The decision has been made very reluctantly and with a
heavy heart," Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said in a statement on the club
"To find ourselves in our current situation from where
we were in the first week of September, and considering the drop of performance
levels and run of results over the last three months, it has brought us to this
unfortunate decision today."For
