Garry Monk: 'Source comes from outside the club'

Swansea City coach Garry Monk claims that he is aware of the source apparently leaking information about the Welsh club.

Swansea City coach Garry Monk has claimed that he is aware of the source apparently leaking information about the Welsh club.

Monk has been trying to defuse pressure of late, following reports of a training ground confrontation between his players.

"I have a good idea of the source it's come from to try and unsettle us, but you could see on Sunday how unified the group are, so there are no problems," Monk told reporters, according to "I'll tell you the truth, the incident was blown out of all proportion. It was handbags - all over and done with, no problems and dealt with at the time.

"Then it goes and gets blown out of proportion. In a training environment, with 20 men working hard with intensity, these things happen. It could be anything - a mistimed tackle and it's handbags. But it's dealt with there and then and we move on.

"The source mentioned stuff that showed it clearly came from the outside because some of it was bizarre. People will try and unsettle you, try and find an edge, but this group's reaction shows how together they are and how morale should be."

Swansea currently find themselves sitting in 15th place in the Premier League table.
