Monk mad at Moses for 'cheating' Swansea

OUTRAGE: Moses, centre, is accused of diving to win a penalty (PA)

SWANSEA BOSS Garry Monk has slammed Stoke winger Victor Moses as a “cheat” after the player apparently dived to earn a penalty that resulted in the Potters claiming a vital win over the Swans.

Striker Jonathon Walters converted the spot kick and as a result of this Stoke City won 2-1.

Speaking after yesterday’s (Oct 19) Premier League match, the Welsh club’s manager was outraged at Moses’ antics in the box and vented his frustration at the referee’s decision to award a spot kick for what looked like minimal contact.

Monk told BBC Sport: “Moses is a cheat, and should be ashamed of himself.”

Clearly angry at official Michael Oliver’s performance, the Swans coach added: “It was an absolute disgusting decision from the referee.

“He is supposed to be a professional referee at the highest level. He's the only guy who thought it was a penalty. Everyone in the stadium was amazed.”

His opposite number Mark Hughes defended Moses, who is on loan from Chelsea, and claimed Monk’s comments were “unacceptable”.

The Stoke manager added: “He's obviously upset. We have to come in here 20 minutes after the game to speak about what's gone on and sometimes you just have to bite your tongue and maybe that will come from experience.”

The defeat leaves the Swans without a win in five league games and eighth in the table following a promising start to the season which saw Monk’s men win their opening three matches.

Monk’s emotional outburst could land him in hot water with the FA which could result in sanctions.
