It's Not The End For Bodde Says Jenkins

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says that Bodde's latest injury setback doesn't necessarily mean the end of his career.

The Dutch midfielder, 27, has now failed in two attempts to recover from a knee injury he suffered back in November 2008, after suffering another problem during his comeback game last Saturday at home to Peterborough United.

Some of us feared the worst after realising that he needed a second operation on his troublesome left knee, but the Swans chairman says there is still hope for the highly talented midfielder.

'In this day and age, there are a lot of players suffering this type of injury and they are coming back from it,'

'We have examples in our own squad in Marcos Painter and Garry Monk.

'They made full recoveries and they've carried on with their careers, and there's nothing to say that Ferrie cannot do the same.

'Obviously he has suffered another setback and we are all disappointed.

'It means another spell out for him and a lot of time lost, which is a frustration for everyone.

'But we just hope that he gets some good advice back in Holland, gets the operation done as quickly as possible and begins working towards a comeback.'


Some fans on our Message Forum suggested that we used American surgeon Dr Steadman, who helped Owain Tudur-Jones get back into regular first team action after recovering from a similar serious injury.

Bodde is set for yet another 6 months out, and Jenkins added:

'We went along with the surgeon in Holland's opinion and everybody was comfortable with that,'

'The most important thing was that Ferrie felt comfortable, which he did, and it's just disappointing that he needs another operation.

'It puts us another six months down the line, but we have to be positive and get on with things.

'We wish Ferrie all the best and we will see where we are in a few months' time.'
