While Most Families were sitting around the Christmas tree waiting for Santa Claus, Gary Monk was packing up his bags and going walking out the door on his beloved Swansea City.

I know how the system works and I will do anything I can to prevent Swansea from getting relegated this season. I don’t want to be treated any different than any of the other managers in the league , I want to be taken seriously”.
