Betting suspended on Swansea's Garry Monk to be sacked

London: A leading bookmaker suspended betting on the next Premier League manager to be sacked amid a rush of wagers on Monday that Garry Monk would be dismissed by Swansea City. 

"Monk was 1/4 to be the next manager to go, yet that did not dissuade punters desperate to back the Swansea manager," said a spokesman for William Hill.

A 3-0 home defeat by surprise league leaders Leicester City on Saturday was the Welsh club`s fourth loss in five games and left them in 15th position.

They are now one point above the relegation places. 

Monk, 36, is a former Swansea captain who played for the club for 10 years. 

He was appointed manager in succession to Michael Laudrup in February 2014.
