Fontàs can say good-bye to the season

Bad luck for Andreu Fontàs. The Catalan player was injured on 11 minutes of the first part and the thing not look good.

Andreu Fontàs on Thursday played his fifth game as a starter with the first team this season. It was a good opportunity to vindicate, but everything went to hell in 11 minutes. The defender lost a fumble and try to go back, the leg she was "stuck". He tried to continue the play, but could not. He lay on the ground and betrayed signs of pain and that something important was happening.

He retired from the field on a stretcher from the locker room, along with two crutches, climbed into an ambulance and was taken to University Hospital in Pamplona.

Early reports speak of that has affected the cruciate ligaments of the knee of the right leg. "Now we are testing, but it did not look good," Guardiola admitted in the press conference after the game. Some unconfirmed reports, took it for granted that the season may be over for him. "We're in the quarterfinals of the Cup but saddened by the Fontàs Andreu injury. Fonti Many spirits!" He wanted from his Facebook page Carles Puyol. (via SPORT)

On first examination it appears that Andreu Fontàs has injured his cruciate ligaments in his right knee - more tests will be done. (FCB twitter)
