Dont mess with Chico


Recommended Posts


Swansea City's troubles deepened last night following reports that their centre half Chico Flores picked up a brick during a training ground row with former captain Garry Monk.

Twenty four hours after the club suffered a chastening defeat at the hands of Tottenham at the Liberty Stadium, it emerged that Police had been called to the club's training facility on Friday afternoon.

They are reported to have taken no action against the 26 year-old Spaniard while the club insist the issue has been resolved. Still, for manager Michael Laudrup, whose side are only three places and as many points off the relegation zone, it is adverse publicity he could have done without.

The alleged incident came just days after Flores is understood to have walked out of a senior team meeting at the club. A member of the public, believed to be the mother of a youth-team player at the club, phoned police after claiming to have spotted a screaming Flores brandishing the brick.

A statement from South Wales Police confirmed: ˜Police were called to the training ground at around 1.30pm on Friday 17 January. Club officials were spoken to and no police action was required.'

A Swansea spokesperson is reported to have said; "Chico Flores and Garry Monk had an exchange of words, which is not uncommon between players in training grounds across the country, but no threats or altercations took place between the players in question."

It was the beginning of a desperate weekend for Flores, whose own goal, eight minutes into the second half on Sunday, put Spurs two goals to the good. Emmanuel Adebayor added to his first half header, to secure the points 20 minutes from time, before Wilfried Bony snatched a consolation goal.

Monk, 34, joined Swansea in 2004 on a free transfer from Barnsley. He led the side to promotion from the Championship three years ago but has made only one appearance for the club this season, in the Capital One Cup defeat at Birmingham City.
