Tags: injury alert!


As most of you know by now, our Sexy Cesc is the latest victim of what appears to be a real plague for our boys: a hamstring rupture will keep him out for about three weeks. He now joins Iniesta, Alexis and our poor Ibi in Barça's infirmary. Let's not forget Pretty Pique who just recovered from the very same type of injury. Now, SPORT, Barça's number one newspaper is expressing in an article the concern that some culers are also feeling: is there anything wrong in the way our babies train? Do we need to worry? 

The floor is yours, what do you guys and gals think? 

For your info, this is the Google Translate version of the SPORT article:

Afellay set for knee surgery

Barcelona's Dutch midfielder Ibrahim Afellay will undergo surgery tomorrow after suffering knee ligament damage in training today.

The Spanish and European champions did not indicate how long the 25-year-old will be sidelined for, but he could be out of action for as long as six months after going under the knife.

A statement from Barcelona this evening read: "Ibrahim Afellay suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during training on Thursday afternoon. The Barça No20 will have surgery tomorrow."

Afellay, who joined Barca from PSV Eindhoven in January, had just got back into Pep Guardiola's line-up after missing the start of the La Liga season due to a hamstring injury.
