Garry Monk admits missing his twins' birthday party because he will be in charge of Swansea at White Hart Lane has not made him popular with his wife.
The 35-year-old manager said: "I've had it all in the ear!
"But my wife understands my job and has been tremendous about it.
"The twins are having a party on Wednesday so I will have to FaceTime them. Maybe I could try it at half-time and get the lads to give them a wave," he joked ahead of the Tottenham game.
