The right back defender noted a pain in the femoral biceps
The right back defender, Douglas, was injured in the match of the International Champions Cup played at FedEx Field of Washington against Chelsea. Douglas only played until the 15th minute, when he noted a pain in the femoral biceps of his right leg. The injury will leave him out of action for 2 months and won't be able to start the official season with the team.
Douglas was replaced by Sergi Roberto, who is getting used to the demarcation of the right back defender. Luis Enrique spoke at the press conference after the game about the injury of the Brazilian. "Douglas's injury is by far the worst news of the preseason", said the Spaniard coach.
Here you can watch the moment of the injury:
The 8 weeks that Douglas will be out of the fields, means he will miss the Spanish and European Super Cups and the start of the league. His return is expected in late September and could return to the fields on October 4th at the 7th matchday of La Liga in Sevilla's stadium.
