Huw Jenkins: 'Swansea City won't appoint experienced coach'

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins insists that the club won't appoint an experienced coach to work alongside Garry Monk.

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has rejected suggestions that the club need to appoint an experienced coach to work alongside Garry Monk.

Monk has been handed a three-year deal at the Liberty Stadium in what is his first job in management, but Jenkins is keen for the former defender to work by his own methods rather than relying on additional help from an experienced assistant.

Jenkins is quoted by the South Wales Evening Post as saying: "I think going for a more experienced figure is always an option but you look at our way we have worked, giving young, up-and-coming coaches a chance to coach.

"That goes against what most people do, and that's always a good thing for our club. When you look at other clubs who tried putting experience in last season, most of them have lost their jobs long before the end of the season.

"I don't see it as a good way to work. It can only cause problems in my view."

Monk won five of his 17 games in charge after replacing Michael Laudrup for the final months of last season.
