Swansea City AFC – Swans and Laudrup part company
Swansea City and manager Michael Laudrup have tonight parted company.
Garry Monk will take up the reigns as head coach alongside current first team coach Alan Curtis for the foreseeable future.
“It is a decision we have taken reluctantly" confirmed Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins. "But it’s a decision made in the best interests of Swansea City Football Club and our supporters."
“It is the first time in nearly 10 years that the club has parted with a manager in this way, but we had to remove the constant uncertainty surrounding the club and Michael’s long-term future with us.
The Swansea chairman concluded: “I hope all our supporters can fully understand how difficult this period has been for us and I would urge everyone connected to the football club to get behind Garry Monk, the staff and players."
