Ronald Koeman: Linked with the manager's job at Swansea

Garry Monk was appointed on an interim basis by Swansea last month following the sacking of Michael Laudrup, and Van Zweden has insisted that the club are happy with the work he is doing.

However, there remains uncertainty about the role in the long-term, and Koeman is understood to have made contact through his representative, Guido Albers, to register an interest.

The experienced Dutchman is currently in charge at Feyenoord but has already announced that he will be moving on at the end of the season.

Quoted in Voetbal International, Van Zweden said: "People logically link me with Swansea-related questions, but I don't decide about this sort of business.

"Albers indeed approached with the question of whether Koeman was a suitable candidate for Swansea.

"I passed on the number of the agent to Huw Jenkins and whether there has been any contact I really do not know. I know that the club is very pleased with Garry Monk."

Monk has been praised for Swansea's performances since he took charge but they remain just four points above the relegation zone.

"The club climbs up again, so there is no reason for a new coach," Van Zweden is reported as saying, adding: "Though it may change again if you lose three times in a row."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
