ACL damage for Dos Santos

Jonathan dos Santos faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines for Barcelona, as the club have confirmed he has suffered knee ligament damage.

The Mexican midfielder, who has been on the outskirts of the first team this term and otherwise linked with a loan move to Real Sociedad, hobbled out of training at the Ciutat Esportiva on Wednesday.

Barca have since confirmed that Dos Santos has suffered anterior cruciate ligament damage to his right knee.

The 23-year-old, who could now face surgery and several months on the sidelines, will undergo further tests in the coming days to determine the exact extent of damage done.
