SWANSEA City boss Michael Laudrup is facing another difficult week after it emerged that police were called after a row between Garry Monk and Chico Flores.
Stories circulated at the weekend that the two defenders were involved in a training ground altercation - and the club have now confirmed there was an incident.
The Daily Mail have claimed the police were called after a member of the public spotted Flores allegedly holding a brick, though that has not been confirmed by either the police or the club.
A Swansea spokesperson 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’s understood a member of the public phoned the police, who felt no action was required.
“The matter has been dealt with and is concluded.”
A statement from South Wales Police said: “Police were called to the training ground at around 1.30pm on Friday.
“Club officials were spoken to and no police action was required.”
Despite the incident, Flores was included in the Swansea team which went down 3-1 to Tottenham on Sunday.
Club captain Monk has not played for several months as he recovers from injury.
Swansea have endured a troubled few weeks. They have been dragged into a relegation fight having gone eight Premier League games without a win and are in the midst of an injury crisis.
