Juankar set to miss rest of season

Malaga defender Juan Carlos (known as Juankar) is set to miss the remainder of the season after tearing his cruciate knee ligament.

The 27-year-old was forced off injured in Malaga’s 3-2 defeat at Real Madrid on Saturday nine minutes before the break after picking up the injury.

El Desmarque now report that tests have confirmed the left-back has ruptured the cruciate in his right knee in an injury which is set to rule him out for at least six months of action.

Juankar joined the Andalucian side in a permanent deal from Portuguese club Braga this year after a two-year loan spell and has featured in 10 La Liga matches this season.
