Barcelona have confirmed that defender, Samuel Umtiti, has suffered a left knee injury ahead of their away La Liga clash with Villarreal on Sunday night.
Umtiti will currently experience traditionalist treatment and will miss Barcelona’s clash against the Yellow Submarine at the El Madrigal Stadium.
Barcelona expressed this in an announcement by means of its official site on Friday.
The statement read: “Samuel Umtiti has a problem with his left knee and will undergo conservative treatment.
“The first team player is not available, and his recovery will dictate when he can return.”
Umtiti, who didn’t include in Barcelona’s 2-2 draw against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, has shown up in all opposition for the Catalan club so far this season.
His last appearance for Quique Setien’s men was against Celta Vigo in Balaídos.
