These are the best jokes and lookalikes that Twitter had to offer as news broke that Swansea have sacked manager Garry Monk.

The Swans released a statement saying they had “reluctantly” parted company with Monk after a dismal run of form left them hovering perilously close to the relegation zone having picked up just 3 points out of the last 33 available.

Brendan Rodgers, David Moyes and Gus Poyet have been linked, but many will feel the sacking is harsh on a manager who last season guided Swansea to an 8th place finish in the Premier League.

Nevertheless, let’s round up the best jokes and lookalikes to have been proffered in response to Swansea sacking Garry Monk…
