Garry Monk’s first season in charge of Swansea City has been nothing short from amazing as the Premier League club ended the season at the 8th spot of the Premier League which is the highest ever for the club which is located at the Liberty Stadium.
Following the sacking of Michael Laudrup, not a single player or a fan of the club had imagined that going through such an impressive season was going to be possible but it happened and it was with Garry Monk at the head of it all.
Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho has already been named as the best manager of the Premier League of this past season as the Portuguese coach was able to push his team to an unbeaten streak of 16 games as well as guide comfortably Chelsea to the Premier League title.
Those are a few of the reasons on why Mourinho was selected as the best coach of this recently concluded season in the Premier League but Garry Monk was a huge contender on snatching this individual award.
This season was a historic one for both Garry Monk and Swansea City; this is due to a variety of things that were accomplished.
The first reason is due to Swansea City’s sublime start of the season where they managed to defeat Manchester United, Burnley and West Bromwich Albion in successive fashion as Garry Monk and his team collected 9 points from the possible 9 out of the 3 opening matches of their campaign.
Bringing back the Korean midfielder Ki Sung-yueng was a decision that proved to be a masterful one as the player was even awarded with the Supporters’ Player of the Season thanks to the contributions that he has made to Swansea City in this season that reached its end only a few days ago.
With a sum of 56 points, this Swansea team has the highest amount of points secured in a single Premier League season and even though Swansea City finished their campaign by losing 1-0 against Crystal Palace, Garry Monk is well aware that this season has simply been out of this world for him and his players.
“I was disappointed with the loss but I can’t complain too much. It’s been an incredible season, to finish where we are with a record number of points. It’s been a fantastic journey for me, the players and everyone at the club. Some of the quality has been the best I’ve seen at the club and hopefully it’s a foundation to build on.” Swansea City’s Garry Monk told reporters.
History was made by Garry Monk in what was a remarkable season and this is only the first season of the 36 year old manager in charge of Swansea City, expectations are high at the Liberty Stadium as fans want to see their club continue shattering records and surprising everyone for the next years to come.
