IN the wake of the sacking of manager Gary Monk, Swansea City have today confirmed the departure of three members of the coaching staff, including former Welsh Premier midfielder Kristian O'Leary.

After making 289 Football League appearances during an 18-year career with the Swans, which included brief loan spells at Cheltenham Town and Leyton Orient, O'Leary was released from the Liberty Stadium in early 2010.

After a brief spell with Wrexham, he signed for Neath in July 2010 and went on to make 39 (+4) WPL appearances, scoring four goals for the Eagles.

O'Leary also made two Europa League appearances for the club in the ties against Aalesunds FK of Norway.

In  November 2011, he was named caretaker manager after the departures of Neath's management team of Terry Boyle and Peter Nicholas, but left at the end of the season following the club's liquidation, joining Swansea in July 2012 as youth team coach.

He was named assistant first team coach earlier this year.
