Williams and Mahrez clash post-match

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams and Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez clashed in the tunnel following the Foxes’ 3- win at the Liberty Stadium.

The pair had to be separated outside the Swansea dressing room, and then Williams attempted to adhere to Mahrez on to Leicester’s group bus.

Swansea City manager Garry Monk mentioned he was unaware of the incident.

A Leicester spokesman mentioned Mahrez did not attempt to enter the Swansea dressing room, but declined to comment additional.

Williams and Mahrez came collectively during the initial half of Saturday’s match when the Swansea centre-back attempted to wrestle the ball from the Leicester winger to take a free of charge-kick.

Referee Michael Oliver spoke to each players following the incident but did not show either a yellow card.

Mahrez had already scored twice by then, and collected his hat-trick in the second half to send Leicester two points clear at the prime of the Premier League and heap more stress on beleaguered Swans manager Monk.

After the tunnel clash, Williams brushed previous reporters in search of the Leicester bus, but quickly returned inside the stadium.
