Toulalan in fitness battle

French international midfielder Jeremy Toulalan is a doubt for Malaga’s next League game due to a hamstring injury.

Toulalan had to withdraw from training with the Anchovies on Wednesday, and Malaga have now confirmed that the 28-year-old has suffered a grade one tear to his right hamstring.

He now faces a race against time to recover ahead of Malaga's home clash with Levante at La Rosaleda on Saturday, September 15.

The Costa del Sol outfit's Coach Manuel Pellegrini will also be hoping that Toulalan, one of his most experienced players, will be able to face Zenit St Petersburg in their opening Champions League Group C encounter on September 18.
