Swansea is left without Angel Rangel for the next six weeks

Swansea captain Angel Rangel will be out for the next six weeks, the club said. The 35-year-old Spaniard has undergone surgery because of a loin spread. Ranhel suffered a series of injuries during the season, which limited him to only six games in all the tournaments since the beginning of the campaign, and the current injury the Spaniard received in the loss of Tottenham last month.

In the absence of Ranchel, Swansea manager Carlos Carvahal will continue to bet Kyle Knighton as the right-wing defender.
