Swansea star grabs brick in training-ground row

Police were called to Swansea City’s training ground after defender Chico Flores allegedly picked up a brick in a furious row with team-mate Garry Monk.

The incident happened on Friday when an altercation on the pitch between the two players escalated dramatically.

A member of the public, believed to be the mother of a youth-team player, phoned police after claiming to have spotted a screaming Flores brandishing the brick.

Officers took no action against the volatile Spaniard, leaving the matter in the club’s hands.

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 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.’
