Barcelona Defender Rafael Marquez Out Injured


Barcelona’s Mexican international defender Rafael Marquez will be out of action for up to 15 to 20 days with a left calf injury.

It is reported that Marquez has just returned to the team after surgery for a knee injury he sustained in the Champions League semi-final first-leg against Chelsea on April 28.

The player now will miss the rest of Barcelona’s tour of the United States and is a major doubt for Mexico’s World Cup qualifier against the United States on August 12 and the Spanish Super Cup first leg against Athletic Bilbao four days later.

European and Spanish champions Barcelona kick off the defence of their domestic title at home to Sporting Gijon on Monday August 31.
