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

Bodde Out For The Whole Season



Swansea City have been dealt a massive blow with the news that Dutch midfielder Ferrie Bodde will miss the rest of the season.

He suffered a knee injury in November 2008 and he made his first League start on Saturday at home to Sheffield United, but he lasted just 8 minutes after suffering a recurrence of the injury that's kept him on the sidelines for so long.

It's a huge disappointment for the player and the club as we were looking forward to welcoming the Dutchman back to the team.

Regarded as one of the best talents in Paulo Sousa's squad, he came close to leaving in the Summer with Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic making bids for the 27 year-old.

Chairman Huw Jenkins said:

'It's a big blow, not just for the football club but, more importantly, for Ferrie himself.

'He is devastated at the moment. But as a club we have told him we will look after him and stand by him every step of the way - as we did last time.

'He will remain a very important member of this football club. We all feel for him, and I'm sure every Swans fan will join me in wishing him a speedy recovery.''

this is terrible news, gutting for ferrie and for us. such a long time to not play football, no idea if he'll ever return the player he was.
GThomas
can't we accept wigan's bid now, as i doubt he'll ever be a top player now
cyjax
Shocking, shocking news!!!!!!!! I feel for Ferrie and our cause. We desperately need Britton, Allen & Prately fit for the remainder of the season now.

I can't believe what I'm reading! This can't be true... This cruel, very cruel to him.
Czech_Jack
Cruel, but my thoughts are entirely with Bodde here, must be unbearable for him. We've looked after him before and I'm sure we will keep it up, but hey if we'd have gone with the Wigan offer we would be screwed as it was appearance related.
Originalxor
Could he even put in a brief appearance on Tuesday just so we can all give him a massive shout to cheer him up?

Gutted for the player but you should have accepted Megsons offer of 3.5 million. That signing along would have been enough to get shot of Megson.

@tomog, erm no... While it does sound great, but we'd wouldnt have actually got that. As much of the deal was on performance and appearance, so still being injured would have been somewhat of a loss to say the least.
OriginalXOR
We'd have got 1.75m which would have been nice
GThomas
all the best Ferrie, i'm not righting you off just yet :-) Glad you stayed a Swan!
