Tests rule out serious injury for Barca defender Lenglet

first_imgBarca defender Clement LengletKampala, Uganda | XINHUA | There was good news for FC Barcelona on Monday when tests showed that central defender Clement Lenglet has only suffered a minor groin injury and will be fit for their Champions League return leg game against Napoli on August 8.Lenglet was forced out of Barca’s 5-0 win away to Alaves that ended the La Liga season on Sunday in the 48th minute and quickly disappeared into the dressing room.With Samuel Umtiti already out of action with a long-standing knee problem and only B-team defender Ronald Araujo to give back up to the veteran Gerard Pique, a serious injury for Lenglet would have been a major blow for Barca’s Champions League hopes as the club looks to avoid ending the season without a title.However, Barca coach Quique Setien will breathe a bit easier after the tests shows that Lenglet has not suffered any tear to his groin and will have no problem being fit for the vital European game. ****XINHUAShare on: WhatsApplast_img
