Swansea City are a club under construction but only on the pitch. Historically they are a well established club having been formed 102-years ago. This coming campaign manager Garry Monk will be looking to shape his side into being a hard nut to crack and possibly to be giant killers.
In his quest to making his first gig as a manager a fruitful one, Monk brought in Jefferson Montero, Marvin Emnes, Stephen Kingsley, Lukasz Fabianski and Bafétimbi Gomis to his nest. Michel Vorm, Gwion Edwards, Alejandro Pozuelo, Thomas Atyeo and Daniel Alfei have been sold out while Michu has been loaned out to Napoli. Monk released Leroy Lita, Jernade Meade, David Ngog and Darnel Situ.
It is no secret that the news of last season’s start performer Wilfred Bony staying at the club despite drawing interest from various clubs in Europe is a huge boost for the Swans. Monk managed to lead the side on the field as captain for several years before holding the managerial position. Now it is time for the Englishman to lead from the sideline.
The Swans will kick off their campaign with an away match against Manchester United on the opening day, Saturday 16 August.
