Swansea City head coach Garry Monk says he's not affected by Ronald Koeman's link with the manager's job at the club.
The current Feyernoord manager, who has announced he will leave the Dutch club at the end of the season, has expressed an interest in taking the job at the Liberty Stadium. His agent has confirmed this to BBC Sport, but Monk says it doesn't concern him, and he is focused on their next game on Saturday at home against West Bromwich Albion.
'I don't care - it doesn't affect me,'
'This is the business we are in.
'Players and managers will always be linked with other clubs, but I can't worry about that.
'Names will always be linked when a manager changes, and I guess this shows that everyone wants to work in the Premier League. It's the most exciting league in the world so I don't blame people for trying to get linked with certain jobs.
'But I just have to focus on what I am doing, and that always means the next game.'
Talking about the next game against West Brom, Monk said that it is one of the defining games of the season. He also added that Michu has a chance to feature following a long ankle injury:
'You get defining games throughout season, and this is definitely one of them,'
'We want the three points and so do West Brom.
'It's a good game, a big game, but we're in front of our home fans and it is important that we put on a performance to get the win.'
'He's [Michu] trained well this week,'
'We've been assessing him every day and we tailor the training it to him. He has taken part in most of the sessions this week.
'He's been great and looked sharp on Thursday and we'll make a judgement on him on Friday.'
