Garry Monk

Where is Garry Monk now?

A Swansea City legend who represented and led the club as captain from League Two all the way to the Premier League, Garry Monk hung up his boots in 2014.

Monk was initially appointed as Swansea’s interim player-manager after the sacking of Michael Laudrup, but after surviving a relegation battle he was given the manager’s job on a full-time basis.

His first full season in charge of Swansea City was a real success with the club finishing in eighth place in the Premier League and beating both Arsenal and Manchester United home and away.

After being touted as a future England national team manager, Monk’s Swansea side had a terrible first half of the 2015-16 season and he was cruelly sacked after they went on a terrible run winning just one of 11 Premier League games.

After leaving Swansea City, Monk made an appearance as an analyst on BBC One’s Match of the Day programme as well as Sky Sports shows Saturday Night Football Show and Goals on Sunday.

In June 2016, Monk was back in football as the new manager of Championship side Leeds United on a rolling one-year contract.

After a season spent mostly in the play-offs, a run of just one win their last eight games meant that Monk’s side missed out by five points and he subsequently resigned from his post in May 2017.

Monk wasn’t out of management for long and joined Championship side Middlesbrough a month later as their new manager.

Unfortunately his Middlesbrough side took a while to adapt to his way of playing and he was sacked after just seven months with his side three points off of a play-off position.

He wasn’t out of work for long and just three months later he was appointed in his current role as manager of Championship side Birmingham City
