MILITARY HALTS KI'S CAMPAIGN.

KI SUNG-YUENG is out of Swansea's clash with Manchester City because he has to report for military service.

The South Korean is set to complete four weeks of training during the summer, so has been given an early holiday by City.

National service is compulsory for under-29s and usually lasts 18 months, but as Ki was in the side that won bronze at the 2012 Olympics he has a as Ki w at t p partial exemption.

With barely six weeks between the end of the season and Swansea reporting back for training, there were concerns the 27-year-old (left) would not have a chance to w rec That recharge his batteries.

That prompted Swansea to give him time off even though the Premier League campaign is not over. Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski will also be absent.

"Fabianski is on holiday because he has the Euros coming up, and Ki the same because of military service," said head coach Francesco Guidolin.

"Because he has to do four weeks we realised it meant he would not have very much time to rest.

"So we want him to have some more time for a holiday, to have more days off."
