Vorm Faces 6-8 Weeks On Sidelines

Vorm Faces 6-8 Weeks On Sidelines
Swansea City have been dealt a big injury blow with the news that goalkeeper Michel Vorm will be out for 6-8 weeks with a groin problem.

The Dutch international suffered the injury when trying to keep out Carlos Tevez's winning strike during Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Premier League title holders Manchester City.

Kate Rees, the club's head physio, said:

"Michel has a partial rupture of his adductor muscle. He are looking at six to eight weeks out.``

Together with Micah Richards' knee injury, it meant there was 12 minutes of stoppage game making the match the longest in Premier League history.

Vorm's injury comes at a bad time for the Swans as he could miss big games against the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United.

Gerhard Tremmel will come in as his replacement.
