Swansea City suffer major injury setback



Swansea City defender Mike van der Hoorn is set to be out for the remainder of the Championship season after undergoing knee surgery.

The Dutch centre-back has been a key player for the Swans throughout the current campaign, making 24 appearances in the Championship for Steve Cooper’s side.

The former Ajax defender first picked up the injury during a pre-match warm-up for a Championship game against promotion rivals Brentford on Boxing Day.

He then thought that he had recovered from the setback but suffered the same injury during the home victory over Charlton Athletic at the start of January.

Swansea have revealed that the defender is likely to miss the rest of the season after recently undergoing knee surgery.

Until picking up the injury before the Brentford game, van der Hoorn had played every minute of the season bar 45 against Huddersfield Town.

Cooper does have other options at centre-halve, and will be hoping youngsters Joe Rodon and Ben Cabango can continue to impress in the final months of the season.

The Verdict

Swansea will be very disappointed to have come away with nothing at Fulham on Wednesday night and, for supporters, the night will have been made worse by the news that van der Hoorn is out until the end of the campaign.

They now have to rely on the young defenders, which isn’t a bad thing as they do have quality but they can be prone to the odd mistake.

Swansea now have a push for the play-offs to deal with over the final games of the season and if they can put a run together there’s no reason why they can’t get in the top six.

Hopefully, van der Hoorn recovers from his injury and who knows, if the Swans get into the play-offs then he may be an option.
