Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup insists that Chico Flores should only be sidelined for a "couple of days" with an ankle problem.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has calmed worries over the fitness of Chico Flores by claiming that the defender should only be sidelined for a "couple of days".

The Spaniard was forced off the field with an ankle problem during the Swans' 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday following a lengthy absence with ankle ligament damage.

"Chico got a kick," Sky Sports News quotes Laudrup as saying. "It was the same foot so he was a little worried but it's not so bad. He should be ready in a couple of days."

The defender picked up his original injury in February.
