Monk bemused by Laudrup talk

Swansea boss Garry Monk believes "there was no real point" to his predecessor Michael Laudrup holding a press conference after being dismissed as manager.

"I have seen bits and bobs of what was said, and basically what I took from it was that he couldn't answer most of the questions for legal reasons, so there was no real point in having it.

If you call a press conference like that, you should be able to say what you want to say.

It's not my problem, it's between the club and the chairman and the solicitors as it is apparently.

It was strange as I have never seen a manager lose his job and then two weeks later have a press conference about it but if that's what you choose to do, you choose to do (it).

It's nothing to do with us. We have to move on.

– Swansea head coach Garry Monk

Higuain a doubt for Swansea clash

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez is hoping Gonzalo Higuain can recover in time for Thursday's match at Swansea in the last 32 of the Europa League.

The Argentina striker is doubtful for the encounter at the Liberty Stadium after hurting his back in Sunday's 2-0 triumph at Sassuolo.

Higuain sustained a knock on his back and we will have to evaluate his condition," Benitez said to www.sscnapoli.it.

It's early to evaluate whether he (will) play on Thursday or not.
