Puyol undergoes tests on injury

Carles Puyol had to be ‘rushed to hospital’ after Barcelona’s 2-1 win at Osasuna with a suspected bone injury to his face.

The defender reportedly suffered the facial injury in the closing stages of his team’s win in Pamplona and post-match was taken to hospital to undergo tests.

Reports indicate that the player has suffered a suspected fracture somewhere across his face. It would not be the first time that the defender has had such an injury, having fractured his cheekbone a couple of seasons ago.
