Alba suffered a muscle injury, while trying to control one of the balls, to leave the field, and newcomer Sergio Dest entered his place, given that Junior Verbo was excluded from the match.
Barcelona issues a statement about Jordi Alba:
“Jordi Alba suffers from discomfort in the right hamstring,” the Catalan club said in an official statement after the match. “More tests will be conducted on Monday to find out the severity of this injury.”
Fortunately for Barcelona, the injury came before the days of the international suspension, and the player may not join the Spanish national team tomorrow, Monday, for the European Nations Cup.
Deest spoke of putting him in the place of Alba, where he said: “I can play on the right and left, I don’t care where I play, it depends on what the coach needs, if he wants me on the left, I will do that.”
