Monk: We Can Achieve Something Special

Monk: We Can Achieve Something Special

Captain Garry Monk says Swansea City can achieve something 'special' this season - a 'fairytale' promotion to the Premier League as they have just 8 games left to secure a top 2 place in the Championship.

The defender has been out of action since the beginning of January, but he returned as a substitute on Saturday and he's looking forward to playing his part in the final run-in.

Monk told BBC Sport:

'I get the feeling that we can do something special here,'

'Whether that is finishing in the top two or going through the play-offs.

'I feel that because of the way we play and the attitude we show week in and week out.

'We're brave and that is not just about putting your foot in and being disciplined but by the way we play.

'We show for the ball and gets on the ball in tight situations and come the end of the season when the pressure is on and we still have that belief, that is when the real bravery comes out.'


Monk says the Swans can achieve a 'fairytale' promotion:

'When I first came here, we were in League Two,'

'But we managed to get out of that and have progressed every season.

'So it would be a fairytale to get up into the Premier League. It would be unimaginable, not just for the players and the club but for the fans and the city as a whole.

'I have been in the Premier League before with Southampton and didn't get the rub of the green.

'So I would personally love to have one last crack at it, to show you can get there by hard work - that is my motivation and to be there with this club would be amazing.'

'In previous seasons, we might have fallen away by now but we have bounced back more or less straight away after a couple of disappointments.

'The experience of the last couple of years has stood us in good stead and we're showing that on the pitch.'
