Swansea City captain, Garry Monk, will put the club’s safety before his own in upcoming fixtures, claiming that the team’s needs come before his own.
The 32 year-old suffered a foot injury around April, and fought back this summer to make his first 2011-12 league appearance in Saturday’s 3-0 win over West Brom.
The Swansea veteran may now feature again on the weekend, with a tough encounter against Chelsea next on the fixture list.
In an interview with the South Wales Echo, Monk stated: “We all know I’m not 100 per cent, but it is needs must at the moment. We’ve had a difficult couple of weeks with injuries and things so we just have to try to get through it.”
He added: “In an ideal world I would have liked to have had two or three more weeks to recover. But things happen and you’ve got to put the team and the club first.”
