Unable to keep momentum from their hot start and having slid down to 15th in the table, Swansea City is parting ways with longtime player and two-year manager Garry Monk.

It’s no secret that Monk was under pressure, and chairman Huw Jenkins pulled the trigger on Wednesday.

Monk has presided over a lengthy down-turn that has seen just one win in 11 Premier League matches.

From SwanseaCity.net:

Club chairman Huw Jenkins said, “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.”

The club isn’t doing this lightly, highlighting his achievements as the front page story on its site. Jenkins said they want to appoint a replacement as soon as possible, but who?

Could we possibly see the return of Brendan Rodgers to the Liberty Stadium?
