Swans Boosted As Monk To Return In 6-8 Weeks

Swans Boosted As Monk To Return In 6-8 Weeks
Swansea City have been boosted with the news that Garry Monk looks set to return from injury in 6-8 weeks, and not the 3 months as expected.

The club captain suffered a knee injury in the FA Cup win against Colchester United on Saturday and after a scan, the defender was expected to be out of action for up to 3 months.

However, following a consultation with knee specialist Jonathan Webb, Monk has received good news that he could be back in action in less than 2 months.

Monk told the Official Site:

'I should be back within six to eight weeks,'

'I am still not happy to be out injured, but considering I thought I would be out for nine months, this is a good result for me. It's bitter sweet.

'I knew something was wrong straightaway because the player's weight went straight on my leg. Then I started to worry because the knee went lax, which happens when you do your cruciate.

'You always think about the worst-case scenario, but thankfully it wasn't that.'

[Talking about knee specialist Jonathan Webb:]

'I think he was more excited than me because there was no damage to the area he repaired,'' joked Monk. 'The only damage was to the bit of the knee he didn't have to repair.

'Now I've got to work hard to get back as soon as possible, hopefully by the end of February or beginning of March.

'It's going to be a massive end of season because we have a great chance to do something special. I want to be part of that.''
