Rangel Set For 4 Weeks Out



Swansea City have been dealt an injury blow with the news that defender Angel Rangel will be sidelined for around four weeks.

The Spanish right back suffered an ankle ligament injury during Sunday's goalless draw at home against Aston Villa.

It was initially thought that Rangel would only be out for up to two weeks, but an MRI scan yesterday showed that he had suffered ligament damage.

Rodgers defensive problems are growing, what with Tate and Caulker also injured, but the Swans boss has no concerns with bringing in Jazz Richards as a replacement:

"I will have no doubts about putting Jazz in at the weekend if I need to,"

"Jazz has a great temperament. He is strong, he is aggressive and he doesn`t get beaten easily.

"And crucially, he also understands how we play."

"I thought Jazz really grew into the game as it went on,"

"He maybe doesn`t have as much experience as some other players do, but part of that is because Angel has played regularly.

"But whenever he has been called upon, Jazz has done well for us. I`m sure that will be the case at Blackburn if he plays."

"Whoever is missing, we have to keep on fighting,"

"We have to keep showing the quality and the spirit we have shown up until now this season."

Jazz Richards is too inexperienced, losing Rangel is a major blow. Rodgers should consider altering his formation to 3 5 2. This way he can play both defensively and offensively. Graham and Lita should both play, if Augustien is fit he should anchor the midfield with Britton and Allen playing with more width to cover Dyer and Routledge. Sinclair may have to be on the bench.
