New head coach Garry Monk says he will "give everything" for Swansea City after taking the helm following Michael Laudrup's sacking.
The 34-year-old former defender, who has been appointed alongside current first team coach Alan Curtis, oversaw his first training session this morning ahead of Saturday's South Wales derby with Cardiff City.
Monk said: “I will give everything I have for Swansea City. I will promise the fans that - and I will ensure the players do exactly the same.
“We are all in this together – and I will make sure we stick together. That is what Swansea City has been all about for as long as I can remember.
“I know this club inside out and I will try and use that knowledge to the betterment of Swansea City. I also know how important this football club is to the fans. They are the important ones in all this and we will all fight every inch of the way for them.
"This is a proud moment for me, and I aim to do the best possible for this club and the loyal supporters.’’
Swansea City Supporters' Trust has backed Michael Laudrup's departure from the club and called on fans to give their backing to newly-appointed head coach Garry Monk.
Trust chairman Phil Sumbler said the Trust had been aware of "growing concerns" among the Swansea City board regarding Premier League performances.
There has inevitably been a mixed reaction among fans to the announcement, with the club facing a critical period of key matches in three major competitions.
However, we know from our supporter director Huw Cooze that the board has not taken this decision lightly, particularly in such an important week for the club, and it's vital that we now all pull together to give the team our full support.
We all want to see an upturn in results, and what better place to start than at the Liberty Stadium against Cardiff City?

The Trust has also thanked Laudrup for his achievements during his time at the club.
The Daily Mail are reporting that tensions between Jenkins and Laudrup had been building up since the summer, after they clashed over transfers. They also report that Jenkins didn't approve of Laudrup's laid-back management style.
The Sun claim that players had complained that the training regime was not intense enough for a club in the Premier League and they had voiced concerns over his management style.
The Mirror also claim that a lack of discipline was the reason Laudrup left the club.
The Telegraph suggest that the club lost patience with Laudrup after he took a short break to Paris following Swansea's defeat to West Ham.
The Times go into detail on who could succeed Laudrup, claiming that Graeme Jones - the assistant manager to Roberto Martinez at Everton - is favourite to take over. They also suggest that former Chile and Atheltic Bilbao manager Marcelo Bielsa is in the mix.
The Independent, however, suggest that Swansea will give Garry Monk and first-team coach Alan Curtis time to turn the club's fortunes, pointing to the club's history of giving unproven managers an opportunity.
