Márquez Out For August 12
Rafa Márquez will be out for 10-15 days after tearing his left calf muscle during training with FC Barcelona, the same leg he injured during the match against Chelsea in late April.
That means, he’ll miss the rest of the tour with Barca, possibly the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Athletic Bilbao and he’ll also miss the match against the USA on August 12. A real shame, considering he still hasn’t played one match under Aguirre this year and only 30 minutes against the LA Galaxy. It might have been risky to have called him up in the first place, considering he was inactive for about 3 months, but for sure he won’t play now.
On a positive note, FC Barcelona is working on giving Rafa a contract renewal, and a deal is only a matter of time. Guardiola holds him in high regard and it’s good to see that he still has a place in the best team in the world.
Who would you want to see paired in the center on August 12? And who would you like to be called up in his place?
