MICHAEL Laudrup is facing an anxious wait over Jose Canas as Swansea City face up to yet another injury blow.

Canas lasted only 17 minutes of Swansea's 2-0 defeat at Manchester United this weekend after suffering ankle ligament damage.

The midfielder joins Michel Vorm, Dwight Tiendalli, Garry Monk, Jonathan de Guzman, Nathan Dyer, Roland Lamah, Pablo Hernandez and Michu in the Swansea treatment room.

Laudrup said: "It was his ligament in the ankle. We will not know until Wednesday.

"It's quite important because are we talking two weeks, four weeks or six weeks?

"That can have an influence on if we have to do something.

"This is the number nine injured player. We will have someone coming back (for Spurs next weekend) but we will have to see with him and Jonathan in midfield."

Despite the latest injury blow, Laudrup again suggested that he will not recall Ki Sung-Yueng from his loan spell at Sunderland this month.

    Yes nettevaughan, a deal is a deal, but as I understand it the option of recalling Ki in the January transfer window was included in that deal, and if that is indeed the case, then there should be no hesitation in exercising that option immediately, given the injury situation we are experiencing at the moment. Ki is far too good a player to be allowed to play a major part in Sunderland's apparent resurgence, to the detriment of ourselves.

    Everybody needs to calm down. 5 of the injured players will be back in 2 weeks.

    Our squad is too small to loan ANYONE but now we have then we must honour it.Laudrup told the Back Cats they could have in for the whole season.A deal i a deal. My concern is why do we have so many injured.:.Maybe the Euro Cup,maybe those ballerina boots they wear,or maybe the squad isnt FIT ENOUGH? Get them running up Kilvey Hill once a week and also use the sanda for heavy training.Why did Laudrup sub Jonjo v Man Utd he was our best player.And WHY did our goalie THROW the ball to a well marked Swan? Keep going you whites.I have faith in you.PS We should have kept the SAME away kit as we did when we beat the Devils

    Yep, Laudrup has dropped a major b**ll**ck. It's not beyond the realms of possibility that Ki might play a major part in us getting relegated. I posted a few months back that we were in a relegation fight and my worst fears are being realised. The side, as a whole, is simply not working hard enough without the ball and we've conceded far too many soft goals this season. Saturday was a classic example - we're poor at dealing with balls crossed into the box, so why do both full backs allow United's only real threat to switch onto his left foot on two occasions to send in a cross in which results in both goals? He's heavily left footed, he's not gonna cross with his right so why can't we defend it? We have 4 relegation fights coming up - Fulham, Cardiff, West Ham and Stoke (we're clearly going to lose to Spurs); fight is the key word, and I'm not sure how much dog we have in us. The manager must drill the team to compete much, much, harder without the ball. We have to get back to keeping clean sheets, particularly at home, like we did under Brenda. It's noticeable that the only game we've won in the league over the past couple of months is the only one we've kept a clean sheet in. The two go together. Some shooting practice would appear to be in order as well.

    Ki should be back here, its stupid Laudrup is letting a solid player like ki play for a rival who is doing well for them. We're only half way throug hthe season and got a ton of injuries, it would be prudent to bring ki back even if he only plays part time. Last time I checked, we paid 5.5 million for him. If sunderland want him and swansea don't they can buy him in the summer. For now, it doesn't make sense to let a solid player like ki get points for a rival who might not only finish above us in the table, but could even put us out of the league.
