Barcelona have confirmed that goalkeeper Marca-Andre Ter Stegen has suffered a back injury in training.
The German shot-stopper arrived at Camp Nou this summer from Borussia Monchengladbach.
But after only a few pre-season matches, the Blaugrana have revealed that the youngster has picked up a knock at the club’s training base.
Luis Enrique’s men admitted via a statement on their official website that medical tests had confirmed that Ter Stegen has a ‘lumbar contortion’.
However, the Catalan outfit have refused to determine how long the injury will keep him out for.
