Barcelona goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo has been ruled out for 3 weeks after suffering a calf injury. The 32 year old Chile star sustained a strain in his left calf muscle which will rule him out of league games against Levante, Celta Vigo and Las Palmas, his agent Cristian Ogalde has revealed.
While speaking with Radio Cooperativa, Ogalde said, “Claudio is alright – he will be 100 percent in three weeks. I have spoken to him and he is relaxed. Claudio expects to feel fine within a week, but he needs to recover fully to make sure the injury doesn’t recur in the coming months.
“He will miss a few La Liga matches, but he is better off making a good recovery so that he doesn’t have a relapse and can be fit for the rest of the season. There is no need to rush the process only to be ruled out for six months with a new injury in the same area.
“The injury was something that everyone was worried about but we were more laid back because Claudio is fine. It is a muscle injury that can occur for no specific reason,” he added.
Second choice German goalkeeper, Marc-Andre ter Stegen is expected to replace him.
