Time at Club:
Swansea City are on their third manager of the season in Paul Clement who replaced the sacked Bob Bradley three days into 2017.
Back in 2011 the Swans won promotion to the Premier League, under Brendan Rodgers, for the first time in their history. The club enjoyed an impressive start to life in the top-flight, finishing 11th in their debut campaign. However, Rodgers was then lured over to Liverpool in the summer of 2012, and was replaced by Michael Laudrup.
The Dane led the Swans to Capital One Cup glory (and thus qualification into the Europa League) the following season after his side thrashed Bradford 5-0 in the final, only to lose his job a year later after a mixed bag of results. Monk was placed in caretaker charge in February 2014, then awarded the job on a full-time basis in May of the same year.
In his first full season at the helm Monk led his troops to an impressive 8th spot, with a record points tally (56) despite losing star man Wilfred Bony half-way through the season. In July 2015 Monk signed a new three-year deal with the club, but then rather harshly given the boot in December.
A losing record in a binary last 10 games has seen Swansea City endure a period of poorer form. Invaluable wins against Burnley, Leicester City, Southampton and Liverpool has seen them keep their heads above water, but reversals against Bournemouth, Hull City, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Hull City has put them on the slide.
