Swansea has fired manager Garry Monk after nearly two years in charge, following a dip in form that has seen the team win just one of its last 11 Premier League games.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins says he made the decision because of "a drop of performance levels and run of results over the last three months."

Jenkins says "when you take into account the excellent campaign we had last season when we broke all club records in the Premier League, nobody foresaw the position we would be in at this moment in time."

Monk was with the club for more than 11 years, first as a defender and then manager since February 2014 when he replaced Michael Laudrup.
