Post match report on Swans v Chelsea
Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says the club is 'delighted' to appoint Garry Monk as first-team manager on a three-year-contract.
Monk took over as head coach following the dismissal of manager Michael Laudrup on February 4.
– Huw Jenkins, Swansea City chairman
Garry represents all the strong values we hold so dearly as a football club and everyone is looking forward to working with him.
We have all been impressed with his work-rate and commitment since taking over the reins in February and how he adapted in very difficult circumstances to secure the points we needed to remain in the top-flight.
Garry will work with the current staff to refocus and improve the playing squad over the summer in order to build a strong, competitive team for another big challenge that lies ahead next season.
Jenkins said the Board of Directors had 'carefully considered' its next step, but decided the timing was right for Monk to be offered the job permanently.
Monk will be assisted by current coach Josep (Pep) Clotet.
