Trochowski out for Sevilla

Sevilla midfielder Piotr Trochowski has been ruled out of Friday night’s game with Celta Vigo at Balaidos.

The German international had to be substituted during last weekend’s 3-2 defeat to Barcelona in the Sanchez Pizjuan after suffering a knee injury and will not recover in time for the trip to Galicia.

“Once we have evaluated tests made then we will continue with the player’s treatment on Wednesday and hope he will make a swift recovery,” read a club statement.

Trochowski will join Ivan Rakitic on the sidelines as the Croatian is suspended and Chilean Gary Medel is also expected to be absent after his red card for elbowing Cesc Fabregas in the Barca match, although Sevilla have lodged an appeal against his dismissal.
