Luis Suarez's injury was one of the negative notes of Barça's win against Sevilla in the final of Copa del Rey. The Uruguayan broke trying to control a ball and quit the pitch very lame. The image of the striker crying on the bench was touching, as the striker feared not being able to play Copa América with Uruguay.

On Monday, the club issued a statement confirming right hamstring injury. The club have not determined low period, but they confirmed the striker will start rehabilitation in Barcelona. Suárez will travel to the United States on Wednesday June 1 to join Uruguayan team and there we will have to see how his injury evolves.

Uruguay will start Copa America on June 5 against Mexico and the other two matches of the group stage will be against Venezuela (Thursday June 9) and Jamaica (Monday June 13.) Some media suggest that the injury Suárez could prevent him from playing for three or four weeks and the striker could join the team in the second stage of Copa América, on Saturday June 18.
