Swansea captain Garry Monk awaits the visit of Manchester United next weekend a very proud man indeed.

The 19-time champions will travel to the Liberty Stadium for the first time on Saturday - an event that highlights the dramatic change in Swansea's fortunes in recent years.

Brendan Rodger's side have certainly impressed during their maiden Barclays Premier League voyage, and went into the international break in 10th place.

But, not so long ago, the future of the Swans could have been so different, as they fought tooth and nail for survival in the Football League.

And Monk finds it hard to believe how much the club have transformed in such a short space of time.

"When you take a minute to think about what this club has achieved, it has been an incredible journey," Monk told

"Now, we are talking about playing Manchester United at the Liberty. If we'd have said that a few years ago then we'd be talking about a cup match.

"But now we are in the Premier League, and everyone can be so proud of that.

"We have settled well too. We're tenth in the table, have kept to our style and have got some fine results.

"So we couldn't really have asked for much more considering we are all in a new environment.

"Walking out at the Liberty against Manchester United will be such a proud moment for everyone at the club."
