Swansea Supporters' Trust 'aware of growing concerns'

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.
