Despite having to play a defender in midfield at Manchester United, Michael Laudrup has still ruled out recalling Ki from Sunderland.
Swansea City’s injury problems continue to get worse as each game passes, but despite Canas limping off early during today’s 2-0 defeat at Manchester United, and defender Amat having to move into midfield, Michael Laudrup is still ruling out Ki returning early from his loan spell at struggling Sunderland.
The vast majority of fans want him back, with 89% voting in favour of his recall in a recent site poll, but Laudrup has again ruled out a return. His earlier reasons for not having him back was that he’d be on the bench again and wouldn’t play – while at Sunderland he’s a key starter. As well as that, he didn’t want to rule out a possible cup game at Wembley.
You can read Laudrup’s quotes on not recalling Ki here.
It makes obvious sense to recall Ki, he’s doing well at Sunderland and scored in their big win against Fulham, so while we struggle to field 5 midfielders in a game and Ki doing a favour for a side below us in the table, surely it’s a no brainer to bring back to help us?
Seemingly and somewhat unsurprisingly it’s not, and it looks like Ki will stay at Sunderland. You even wonder if he’s played his last game for the Swans.
Laudrup says it wouldn’t be a good idea to recall Ki:
“There is a possibility to bring him back but I don’t think it is a good idea,”
“Ki feels comfortable where he is now. If we take him back, he would not play every game. Mentally, it would be very bad for him.”
