At Limo Broker we are avid fans of all sports. From Football, Rugby and Tennis to Swimming F1 and Golf, our sporting profile is pretty eclectic.
Due to this strong passion of ours we are always glad to provide vehicles for sporting figures, conversing with them and picking their brains during the booking process.
This week we booked a 32 seater Party Bus for a Premier League football team, Swansea, chauffeuring them to their late Christmas party. Limo Broker were overjoyed to provide them with the exact vehicle they were looking for and after a bit of Swansea – Cardiff banter, they were on their way for a great night out.
As we all know, footballers are game when it comes to partying and like to ooze with that sense of sophistication and wealth, holding their heads high and showing fans just how cool they really are.
It seems Gary Monk and company did not want to take this conventional approach to a footballers night out, maybe seeing it as more of a pretentious pastime that a good old jolly up!
The group of sportsmen took to the town to have a blow out, yet did it in fancy dress!
With many figures in the public eye trying their best to stay out of the limelight, remaining under the radar, we were pretty surprised when our driver explained just how funny their attire was. We at Limo Broker commend anyone who can step out in a busy nightclub dressed as a penguin!
Gary Monk sure is a lucky guy getting the chance to take a ride in one of our party busses; he must have had an incredible night. Like many great nights out the reality going back to work can be pretty daunting, especially if you have had a stressful week previous.
Last week did mark a stressful week for Gary Monk who was involved in an altercation with Spanish footballer Chico Flores.
Flores has since released a statement on Twitter following the row.
The Daily Mail claimed the police were called after a member of the public spotted Flores allegedly holding a brick, though that has not been confirmed by either the police or the club.
Over a series of updates, he said on his @ChicoFlores12 Twitter account: “Good afternoon , I would like to clarify what has been said in the papers today and to be honest it was just an argument between team mates as it can happen sometimes in a training session or in any changing of any football team nothing more.
“I did not threaten anybody in any moment and even less with a brick. I consider myself a respectful person and a good team mate who likes the unity, closeness and create a good atmosphere around my team mates, if you don’t believe me then ask my own team mates and coaching staff.
“To finish I would like to say that my relationship with Gary Monk has always been fantastic and still is, to a point that we spend the afternoon together yesterday.
“Any person that is involved in the business of football knows that these small arguments regularly happen in training sessions and even more when things are a bit more tense than normal for not getting good results.
“So I just want all you fans to know that Gary and I are two very committed players for Swansea city and it was not more than just a silly argument and nowadays things get blown out of proportion in the press and social networking.
“It’s a moment to be united and focused on the FA Cup Saturday versus Birmingham and Fulham the following Tuesday in League. Come on Swansea!!”
A statement from South Wales Police said: “Police were called to the training ground at around 1.30pm on Friday.
“Club officials were spoken to and no police action was required.”
Despite the incident, Flores was included in the Swansea team which went down 3-1 to Tottenham on Sunday.
Club captain Monk has not played for several months as he recovers from injury.
A Swansea spokesperson said: “Chico Flores and Garry Monk had an exchange of words, which is not uncommon between players in training grounds across the country, but no threats or altercations took place between the players in question.”
