Swansea support Montero over Levante match fixing allegations

Swansea boss Garry Monk says the South Wales club will comply with any Spanish match-fixing investigation which could involve their Ecuador winger Jefferson Montero. The 25-year-old summer signing from Morelia was on loan at Levante three years ago and their 2-1 defeat to Real Zaragoza on the final day of the 2010-11 Primera Division season is currently facing scrutiny from Spanish prosecutors.

"The club's not had any contacts from any authorities whatsoever and I'm not sure how much truth is in that (story)," Monk said.

"But if it is and the right authorities get in touch with us then we'll deal with that when it comes.

"At this moment in time have had no contact and it's not alarming because I'm not sure of the details.

"With a situation like that it's not necessarily them (the players) involved. I've seen it before where they might want to speak to the whole team involved in a game - players, staff, management - at that time whatever it is."
