Jordi Alba unavailable for selection suffers muscle injury. Jordi Alba, the Spanish professional football player playing for FC Barcelona and the Spanish National Team. He holds the position of left-back in the club and has provided the team with an assist in 3 matches in this La Liga. He certainly is an asset for the team and losing him for several matches can cost the team a few matches. Well, unfortunate it is exactly that has happened.
Jordi Alba suffers an injury
Playing against Sevilla on this 5th of October, Monday, Jordi Alba injured right leg. Alba had to leave the pitch in the 75th minute of the match and then he was replaced by Sergio Dest making his debut as the first American to play for the club. The match faced a draw 1-1 Barcelona against Sevilla.
He has been ruled out for an indefinite period of time and will not be available for selection until otherwise noted. The tests carried out following the injury have confirmed muscle injury in the hamstrings of his right leg.
The next match for Barcelona is on the 18th against Getafe, the scene could be slightly different without Barcelona’s strong left-back.
Until when will Jordi Alba be back?
Well, that depends upon the severity of his injury. However, luckily a hamstring strain doesn’t take long in the recovery of course unless it requires surgery. I guess with a couple of weeks rest, Jordi Alba will be back in the ground playing for Barcelona. However, if he has faced a rather severe injury then he might have to take leave for the rest of the season. Since he probably would have to go through surgery. Well, from what it looks like, the injury is not quite severe, or let us hope it’s not. Well, whatever, be the case he probably would not be seen playing in the next match on 18th against Getafe.
