Swansea City have been hit with the news that striker Wilfried Bony could be sidelined for ‘several weeks’
Swansea City have been hit with the news that striker Wilfried Bony could be sidelined for ‘several weeks’ after suffering a hamstring injury during Thursday’s 1-0 defeat against Valencia in the Europa League.
Manager Michael Laudrup also confirmed that right back Angel Rangel will also have a scan after picking up a calf problem in the same game.
After the game, Laudrup spoke about Bony’s injury and said:
‘It could be quite a serious one,’
‘We will have to wait two or three days until we get a scan, but unfortunately I think we are talking several weeks at least.’
‘It is a blow but that’s how it is. You have to accept it and when you have a lot of games this is a possibility.
‘Let’s see what happens with Michu in the next week or so.’
With Michu also injured, Swansea are struggling for firepower as they face a very busy schedule in December.
Laudrup will now rely on loanee striker Vazquez when his side travel to face Manchester City on Sunday.
