'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bodde Looking Forward To 'Positive Future'

Ferrie Bodde says he's looking ahead to a positive future at Swansea City as he aims to return to full fitness by July 1st.

The Dutch midfielder has had a nightmare of knee problems since November 2008 when he suffered a ligament injury in a match against Birmingham City, and since then he has failed twice to recover and return to action.

Bodde will be hoping it'll be third time lucky for himself this Summer, and he also says that a new contract 'won't be a problem':

'That (the contract) won't be a problem,'

'The club made me an offer in November, but I did not put pen to paper then. The main challenge for me was to have fully recovered from the knee injury before I started to think of where to spend the rest of my career.

'I am very honest with myself if my knee had not felt good, I would have quit the game.

'Swansea are keen to offer me a contract extension and I am keen to sign it, so it shouldn't be hard to predict the outcome. But first the club is targeting automatic promotion.'

'I want to be fully-fit again by July 1 I think that's realistic aim,' he added.

'When the lads go on holiday, I will continue training and I may very well be the fittest player in the squad when we start the pre-season campaign.

'I look ahead to a positive future. My knee feels good so I'm looking forward to making a comeback.'


There were fears that the midfielder's career was over after failed attempts to return to League action, but he still seems strong and in the right mindset to try again to avoid a mature end to his footballing career. He has the potential to be one of our best players in a number of years but it's been a big shame for everyone that we haven't been fortunate enough to see more of his quality on the pitch.

Hopefully he can enjoy a full successful season with us in August.
