Bodde Out For The Rest Of The Season

Bodde Out For The Rest Of The Season

Swansea City's influential midfielder Ferrie Bodde will miss the rest of the season after injuring his knee on Friday night.

The worst fears of everyone concerned with the club were confirmed yesterday with the news that Bodde has suffered a similar injury that will keep Marcos Painter out for the remainder of the season.

Swans physio Richie Evans told the club's official site:

"Ferrie has ruptured his cruciate ligament and torn the cartliage in his left knee."

"The MRI scan confirmed our worst fears and although he will see another consultant next week, Ferrie will be out for around six months."

"It will rule him out for the rest of the season and everyone, including Ferrie, is devastated."

The Dutchman will be a massive miss to the Swans after his outstanding performances have helped us adapt to life in the Championship.

On a more positive note, Leon Britton's injury is not as bad as first feared after his MRI scan showed nothing untoward. He may be available to face Coventry on Tuesday night.

Unlucky. We know how it feels to lose the player that takes you from a midtable club to a playoff contender. Hopefully he will come back and do well.
