Swansea City skipper poised to play through injury

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.”
