De Guzman to miss league opener

14 August 2013 15:21

Jonathan de Guzman is set to miss Swansea City's season opener after suffering a head injury while training with the Netherlands.

The 25-year-old collided with Dirt Kuyt on Tuesday ahead of his nation's friendly against Portugal, and was subsequently taken to hospital with concussion.

A statement on the club's office website said: "De Guzman will be sidelined for the next seven to 10 days, meaning he is unavailable for Saturday’s curtain-raiser against defending champions Manchester United at the Liberty Stadium.

"The 25-year-old could also miss next week’s Europa League play-off first leg against Romanian side Petrolul Ploiesti on home soil."

The injury comes as a real blow to the Welsh side, as De Guzman was a key figure under Michael Laudrup last season, on loan from Villarreal, scoring eight times in 45 games.

And after impressing suitably, De Guzman was signed temporarily from the Estadio El Madrigal again for the current campaign.

He also featured in both legs of his side's 4-0 aggregate victory over Malmo in the Europa League, helping them to earn a play-off spot in their return to European football after 22 years.
