Maxwell injury confirmed


Tests carried out on Monday morning confirmed that Brazilian defender Maxwell will be out for three weeks with a torn muscle in his right leg.

Maxwell suffered the muscle injury in the closing minutes of the match against Sevilla in the Sanchez Pizjuan (2-3). Scans on Monday morning confirmed the initial diagnosis.

Farewell to the season

The fact that Maxwell will now miss what remains of the season will come as a blow to manager Pep Guardiola, who has included the Brazilian in his last 23 consecutive squads as versatile cover for the injured Abidal.

Maxwell’s presence in attack has been particularly effective and he played a big role in the goal away to Inter or Messi’s opening goal last Saturday against Sevilla.

Finally, Maxwell saw his fifth yellow card at the weekend and will now face a match ban.
