Monk hits out at Bo-Kyung

Swansea manager Garry Monk

Swansea boss Garry Monk has accused Cardiff midfielder Kim Bo-Kyung of getting away with punching and headbutting Wayne Routledge as the aftermath of Saturday’s South Wales derby continues to boil over.

Cardiff striker Craig Bellamy is currently serving a three-match ban after accepting a charge of violent conduct following a challenge on Jonathan de Guzman that was initially missed by the match officials.

The decision to charge Bellamy came after a three-man panel of former elite referees reviewed the incident and agreed unanimously it was a sending-off offence.

“I would have more concerns about the 35th minute corner for them when one of my players, Wayne Routledge, gets headbutted and punched in the face by Kim,” he said.

“If you look at Wayne, when he gets headbutted and punched in the face, he stays on his feet. He doesn’t make a meal of it.”
