Malaga’s injury prone midfielder Jeremy Toulalan could be out for a month after suffering yet another setback.
The Frenchman, who thanked his teammates and the club’s medical staff in a recent interview for helping him to recover from his last spell on the sidelines , suffered a hamstring injury during last night’s 2-2 Champions League draw with Anderlecht.
It is the third muscle injury the former Lyon ball-winner has sustained this season.
There is some good news on the fitness front for Los Boquerones though, as left back Nacho Monreal may be in line for a comeback against Granada this Saturday. As for long-term absentee Julio Baptista, he is continuing to work in the gym.
