Resulting from a nasty tackle by AS Roma’s Radja Nainggolan, FC Barcelona’s Rafinha is likely to be out for effectively the remainder of the season. The club officially confirmed this morning that the Brazilian suffered a “tear to the anterior cruciate ligament in his right leg“. An injury like that historically has players out 9 to 10 months to be safe regarding recovery with a minimum time out of 6 months. Rafinha will go under the knife in the coming days.
Anims Rafinha. Terrible luck for a guy trying so hard to make his mark on the team.
