Garry Monk looks a dead man walking at the Liberty Stadium according to the bookmakers who have him at 1/3 to leave next
Garry Monk’s future was the source of speculation throughout the month of November although the Englishman was still in charge of Swansea City for Saturday’s 3-0 home reverse against Leicester.
However, this match might potentially have been Monk’s last at the Liberty Stadium, with Swansea’s board considering whether to relieve the young manager of his duties after a run of poor results which has seen the Welsh side hover just above the relegation zone.
Monk was widely acclaimed last season after steering City to eighth in the Premier League and warned that a tougher season was on the cards this time around, although Swansea have enjoyed just three wins from fifteen matches thus far.
The Swans sit just a point above the relegation zone and a scrap against the drop looks set to be on the cards, with Paddy Power going 1/3 about Monk on their Premier League Sack Race market.
BetVictor go even shorter with their 2/7 quote and there is sure to be no smoke without fire as Sunderland and Newcastle start to get their act together and a win for Bournemouth on Saturday means that Aston Villa are the only team adrift at the moment.
Jose Mourinho is a 5/1 shot with 888sport to be the next manager sacked, with Steve McClaren an 8/1 chance, although the former England coach saw his Magpies side beat Liverpool on Sunday and it appears just a matter of time before Monk is the next manager to leave his Premier League post.
All odds were correct at time of posting.
