Swansea's Monk insists: 'I have no problem whatsoever' with Man Utd's LVG

Swansea City manager Garry Monk has made it clear that he has no problem with Louis van Gaal.

Swans director John van Zweden reportedly made disparaging remarks about the Dutch tactician following the weekend's 2-1 win over Manchester United at the Liberty Stadium on the weekend.

Swansea moved quickly to clear up the mooted incident and Monk has also made it clear that the Welsh outfit have absolutely no issue with van Gaal.

"I was made aware [of the quotes], I'm not fully aware of what context it was said in or if, or what, was said but they're obviously not the views shared by myself or the club," said Monk.

"I think the chairman (Huw Jenkins) has already said that and those sort of matters are for the chairman to deal with.

"I have no problem whatsoever, he's the character he is and he's a very experienced man - he has great belief in what he does and what people say after games can always be different to what someone else thinks.

"I didn't necessarily agree with the way he assessed the game at the end but it's not something that bothers me or will concern me. We did our job and we move on to this weekend."
