Garry Monk pays tribute to Swansea City 'family'
GARRY Monk has dedicated Swansea City's Capital One Cup final victory to all the people involved in the club's remarkable rise.
Their win at Wembley completed an amazing ten-journey, which began with escaping relegation from the Football League on the final day of the 2002-03 campaign.
And having beaten Bradford City 5-0 on Sunday, Swansea are preparing for the Europa League.
Monk said: "We've done the hard graft, have played in the lower leagues and worked our way up. Now we are looking at playing European football.
"This cup success is for the fans, the club, the chairman, everyone who works behind the scenes.
"The people who have followed the club or helped the club in any way can now look at the Capital One Cup in the trophy cabinet with a big smile.
"At a club like this, everyone plays their part — and I mean everyone. It's not just the players.
"So we can all celebrate this success — it's for everyone within the Swansea City family."
