Swansea City "reluctantly" sacked manager Garry Monk Wednesday, following a dreadful run which has seen the Welsh club plummet toward the Premier League relegation zone.Former defender Monk, who played for the club during their rise through the divisions to the Premier League and took over from Michael Laudrup as manager in February 2014, steered Swansea to a record eighth-place finish last season.Monk earned plaudits for Swansea's 2014-15 campaign and this season began in encouraging fashion as they were among the early pace-setters, drawing with Chelsea on the opening day of the season and beating Manchester United at the end of August.Rodgers, who was in charge of Swansea when they were promoted to the Premier League, is among the favorites to replace Monk.
