Swansea City outcast Jordi Amat sent prophetic tweet ahead of Garry Monk sacking

The Spaniard has struggled for first-team football this season.

Yesterday saw Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins make the tough call to relieve manager Garry Monk of his duties at The Liberty Stadium.

The club legend has struggled to meet the expectations he set for the club last season and with Swansea slipping dangerously close to the relegation zone Monk has been told to find a new job - along with essentially the bulk of his back-room staff.

Yesterday the Swansea team got involved in training despite their struggles and one Swansea player posted this rather prophetic tweet yesterday.

Jordi Amat sent out this message on his official account, just a few hours before Monk was officially terminated from his role:

Amat is one player who might benefit from Monk's departure. The Michael Laudrup signing has not been in first-team contention this season. He has played two games for the club this season, both in the Capital One Cup with their last game in September.

He has battled injury problems at Swansea, with a lateral cruciate ligament injury and a metatarsal fracture during the past 18 months. However he has not been in first-team contention under Monk this season and he will be hoping to see more action under his new boss.
