Spanish defender Chico Flores and former club captain Garry Monk became embroiled in a fracas last Friday, but Laudrup is adamant the incident has been exaggerated.

The Dane said: "It's never good when you have incidents. I played myself for many years and it happens sometimes for one reason or another.

"The things are always written about when things are not going that well on the pitch in terms of results. It's exactly the same here.

"I think both players - especially Chico Flores - wanted to close this and said we have to look forward.

"If something happened, sorry. We just have to move on."

Former Swans winger Leighton James was also quick to play down the events, adding: "At the start of it, you'd have thought it was a world heavyweight title fight.

"A member of the public reported it and it's been blown out of all proportion.

"Incidents happen on training grounds. It's inevitable when you've got 20 or 30 people working together. Sometimes there will be the odd spat and the odd bust-up.

"It was probably sorted out by the players and it is probably to do with the nerves and the tension around the club at the moment."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
