Barcelona announced on Monday that Sergio Busquets suffered a sprain in the lateral ligament of his right ankle and it’s expected that he will be out for around two weeks.
Although the club didn’t give an exact date for the midfielder’s return, if he respects the recovery process stipulated by the doctors, then he should only miss the games against Real Sociedad in the Copa del Rey and Real Betis in the league.
He might also be doubtful for a hypothetical cup semi-final and the game against Athletic Club on match day 21.
“The evolution of the player will mark his availability for the next games,” was the official line from the club.
In any case, Luis Enrique needs to find a reliable solution for the position in the interim.
