Team’s Victory Over Cardiff Is My Proudest Moments-Garry Monk

Swansea Manager Garry Monk revealed that leading his team to a 3-0 victory over Cardiff in the South Wales derby is one of his most proud moments in his career.

Goals from Wayne Routledge, Nathan Dyer and Wilfried Bony saw the team in the top 10 of the Premier League table.

After the club sacked Michael Laudrup the manager was put on a “ foreseeable future”.

He went on to say:”This is my proudest part, the players were magnificent.”

However the win was Swansea’s second in 11 league games, but bragged about their hopes of avoiding relegation to the Championship as they moved four points clear of 18th-place West Brom.

Monk who has seen Swansea’s troubles and victories since 2004 and added: “We can keep the ball as well as anyone in this league.

“Confidence is the biggest thing. Half the battle is the mentality, if you can get the mentality right the football takes care of itself.

“We need to take the belief from this game and into the games coming.”

Monk said he does not know how long he will be in charge but has insisted on a job on permanent basis.

“It doesn’t feel like an audition,” he said.

“The chairman asked me to take over with the first team and I would do anything for this club – be it the under-eights, the academy or the first team. Fortunately it was the first team and there is no prouder man than me tonight.”
