Andre Villas-Boas admits Jan Vertonghen does not like playing at left-back, but the Tottenham manager insists the Belgian must stay there until Danny Rose has recovered from injury.
– Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas
I have had lots of conversations with Jan regarding this situation.
Unfortunately he has to sacrifice his position as centre-back for the team.
His position at centre-back is not in question. He is one of the greatest central defenders I have worked with. He knows that and he knows that position is waiting for him whenever we have options at left-back. He has my word.
He hasn't fallen in love (with playing at left-back). I know he doesn't like it, but it's no big deal.
"t's a decision I have to make for the best of the team.
Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is without key man Michu for Thursday's Group A clash with Kuban Krasnodar in Russia.
The Spaniard has an ankle injury, while midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has also not travelled for personal reasons.
Pablo Hernandez (thigh) and Garry Monk (knee) are also sidelined.
Lloris was knocked unconscious in an accidental collision with Everton striker Romelu Lukaku in Sunday's goalless draw at Goodison Park.
Emmerson Boyce has not ruled out walking off the field if he and his Wigan team-mates are racially abused in Russia on Thursday.
– Emmerson Boyce hopes football is bigger than racism.
Would we walk off? It all comes down to how bad it is. You see a lot of games where people complain about racism but no-one has actually walked off.
I know AC Milan's Kevin-Prince Boateng did it in Italy but, as a player, you just want to concentrate on the game. As a player sometimes you don't even hear what's going on until people point it out or you hear about it later.
It doesn't scare me. It's all about educating. There was a message sent out by UEFA last week and we want to make a stand, showing that football is bigger than racism or people still thinking that way.
