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.’’
