Bodde Confident Of Making Full Recovery

Bodde Confident Of Making Full Recovery

Swansea City's star midfielder Ferrie Bodde seems confident he can make a full recovery after suffering a long-term knee injury.

The Dutchman looks to be in an optimistic mood regarding his knee problem but he certainly is frustrated with the fact he won't be in action until next season.

The injury could keep him out for 6 months, but a worse case scenario could see him returning near the start of next season.

Bodde told BBC Sport:

'I've been told it takes six months, can be earlier, can be longer... it's just three days ago and my knee looks good now at the moment,'

'I have to deal with it and try to get back for the new season, for pre-season, and start again.'

'I remember everything about the injury, it was a challenge on the end of the pitch,'

'I got a little push in the back, I step on my left foot and my knee collapsed inside.

'I heard a cracking sound and then I know what's happened - not exactly know, but I know it was not good.

'I was not happy but you have to be positive for the future, for your recovery, because if you are negative it's not helping you.

'You want to play the season so it's frustrating, but those things happen in football.'

All we can do as fans is to wish Ferrie (and of course Marcos) a speedy recovery. RM said a few days ago that "there's no justice in football". I think this situation hits the nail on the head. His performances since the Derby tapping up have been on the whole brilliant. He is far and away the best player in our league and the credit goes to him and RM. Thank God he was persuaded to stay. I hope he will come back to score a winning hat trick in the play off final - against Derby or Cardiff! It's heartbreaking because the team against Norwich looked as together as I've seen a Swansea side. I had a feeling before the Brum game that we were going to have a good run like we did last year which would have cemented our place in the top 6. The lads will re-adjust and we will come good again, we still have Jordi, Pratley and Leon after all.
