The Swansea City midfielder will sit out the rest of the season following his injury against Birmingham City but Roberto insists that despite the huge impact of Bodde this season, he has replacements in the squad that will continue the tradition they have built.

When questioned whether he will change his style, he told the Evening Post “We cannot do that

“We have to change certain details and I know the players have the personality and the quality to do that.

“We have got a few playmakers in this club. You cannot compare any two directly, but we have players apart from Ferrie who can keep the tempo of the game up and can see a pass.

“We all know Ferrie is a unique player in terms of what he is good at.

“He is very unusual, not just in this division but at the top level because he has exquisite technique and certain parts of his play are world class.Click here!

“They are irreplaceable, but we can adjust things and adapt and that’s a great challenge for the squad.

“We need to find different partnerships and change our pattern of play slightly but still be as effective and as strong as we have been.

“It’s a very unfortunate situation, but we have been in this sort of position before and there are players in our squad who are desperate to make their mark.”
