Monk: There Are No Problems Whatsoever

Swansea City head coach Garry Monk insists 'there are no problems whatsoever' following reports of a training ground fight this week.

The 35 year-old told the press that the media story suggesting a fight broke out during a training session involving a number of first team players was 'blown out of proportion'.

Monk also said that he believes he knows who it was, who leaked the story to the press to unsettle the team:

'I will tell you the truth. It was an incident that was blown out of proportion, it was handbags,'

'It was all over and done with, no problems whatsoever, and then it gets blown out of proportion. We have got a good idea of the source that it has come from to try and unsettle us at this time.

'But I think you could see on Sunday (against Chelsea) just how unified the group is with the performance.


Talking just a few days before the long trip north to Newcastle on Saturday, Monk says the players have quickly moved on from the incident, which was confirmed by the club:

'I have my ideas of who it may be and stuff trying to unsettle us, but that definitely won't be happening with this group.

'Everyone is fine. There are no problems whatsoever. It was really just nothing. When you are in a training environment and you have got 20 or 30 men with intensity and working hard, these things happen.

'It could be a bad tackle, it could be anything. It was dealt with at that moment in time, everyone was fine and we moved on. Then the media get hold of it and blow it out of proportion.

'The source, where they mention the stuff they mention, clearly comes from the outside because some of it was just bizarre, what they were saying. But that's what people try to do, they try to unsettle you.'
