The skipper says he is proud of the selections by Stuart Pearce, but says losing key three players is not ideal for their new boss during his inaugural pre-season
Garry Monk believes the Team GB call-ups for three of his Swansea City team-mates will be disruptive to Micheal Laudrup's preparations for the upcoming Premier League campaign.
The recently-appointed Swans' boss will be without key players Scott Sinclair, Neil Taylor and Joe Allen during pre-season due to their commitments during the tournament.
And Monk believes their absence will prove detrimental to the side.
"In terms of pre-season planning for the manager and preparations it's not ideal," Monk told BBC.

Although having said it could cause problems, the 33-year-old did reveal he was proud that the Welsh outfit were the best represented club in Pearce's 18-man squad.
And Monk insisted that he is fully behind the Team GB this summer and has told his Swansea team-mates to enjoy the unique experience.
"I'm proud of the boys that are in there and I think it shows how far we've come as a club that we're the most-represented club out of all of the people in there," he added.
"But I can see the other side of it where in terms of pre-season planning for the manager and preparations it's not ideal.
"It doesn't come around very often and I know there's talk there might not even be another British football team in four years' time as well. So it's not exactly something that comes around very often so I think they should all be very proud of themselves and go and enjoy it.
"It's a great experience for them."
