Manager Michael Laudrup of Swansea City, an English Premier League club, has decided not to recall Ki Sung-yeung from his loan to Sunderland back to Swansea, according to foreign media outlets.

“I think I couldn’t bring him back as it wouldn’t help either of us. He is playing there all the time so imagine I take him back and he plays sometimes or sits on the bench and they reach the final -- you can imagine mentally how that would affect the player,” Laudrup was quoted as saying.

Laudrup’s first-team squad has been badly hit with seven of his men injured ahead of the match with Manchester United, in which it lost 2-0. Swansea fans are calling for Ki to come back as the team has now gone seven games without a win this season to date.

Midfielder Ki played center-back when Swansea won the League Cup at Wembley last year but was surprisingly loaned after a falling-out with Laudrup at the end of last season.
