Barcelona’s Gerard Pique has sustained a serious knee injury, the club confirmed on Sunday, with the defender expected to be out for at least two months.
Pique cried as he hobbled off the pitch during Barca’s 1-0 defeat by Atletico Madrid in La Liga on Saturday following a collision with Angel Correa.
“Tests have shown that he has a grade 3 sprain in the internal lateral ligament and partial injury to the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee,” said Barcelona in a statement.
The club also confirmed that Sergi Roberto, who can play right-back or central midfield, will be out for two months after tearing a muscle in his thigh. (Punch)
