Swansea City manager Garry Monk has said that he is disappointed with summer signing Franck Tabanou after the defender voiced his frustration over a lack of playing time with the South Wales side.
The former France Under-21 left-back has made just two appearances for the Swans since a £3.5m move from Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne in June, and is yet to play a single minute of Premier League football.
Despite that, however, manager Monk is disappointed that Tabanou opted to speak out about his issues.
"I'm just disappointed to hear those things, a player talking about those type of things," Monk told reporters. "It doesn't benefit the player in any shape or form. Franck knows very well what I expect from him.
"I have sat down with him and gone through with him what he needs to improve on. When he came to the club in certain elements I was surprised to see he wasn't at the level of others.
"The most important element was on the physical condition to play in the Premier League and to play how I want my team to play. I was surprised to see the condition he came in."
Tabanou was a regular starter at previous clubs Toulouse and Saint-Etienne, making over 30 league appearances in each of his last six seasons.
