Bodde 'I'll Show My Quality Again, Believe Me!'

Bodde 'I'll Show My Quality Again, Believe Me!'

Ferrie Bodde is remaining upbeat about his chances of returning to first team action in the Premier League this season.

The Swansea City midfielder had another operation this week to shave some of his meniscus which was believed to be still causing some pain in his knee.

The Dutchman is finally looking to put the 3-year knee ligament injury nightmare behind him, after experiencing two previous setbacks when he failed to make a return to first team action.

Can it be third time lucky in 2012 for Ferrie Bodde?

He told Sky Sports:

'I am working hard with my rehabilitation and am trying to do everything to play this season for Swansea City in the Premier League.

'It's going very good with my knee and I am feeling strong at the moment.

'We have worked with a team of medical specialist from England and The Netherlands on a rehabilitation program which we will undergo closely.

'In the pre-season I underwent exercises along with the group successfully, so now and then I had the feeling I sank down my knee without feeling any pain but I didn't trust it.

'After extensive consultation with medical specialists I decided to do a minor surgery on my meniscus. My regular orthopaedic surgeon doctor did it for me. He knows the knee the best as he performed previous operations. There is a small piece of meniscus removed. Now I'm back home and feel fine.'

Bodde says not only him, but the whole medical team at the club are confident of his chances of returning to play again in a Swansea City shirt:

'I am not only me but the full team of medical specialists are positive about the future,'

'You have to see this surgery as part of my revalidation process.

'I am constantly in touch with manager Brendan Rodgers and chairman Huw Jenkens. They fully support me and are always ready to help me.

'I will do everything to make my debut for Swansea City in the Premier League. I can't wait for that moment and it's fantastic to see we are doing so well.

'I want to thank Rodgers, Jenkins, the Swansea fans and all people who support me in this difficult period by showing my qualities on the pitch as soon as possible and that will happen, believe me!'
