Barcelona have suffered another big blow ahead of the new LaLiga Santander season
Barcelona have suffered another blow ahead of the new LaLiga Santander season with the news that Oscar Mingueza suffered a hamstring strain at the Olympic Games.
The defender is out of action for now and will continue to be examined before a return date is set after medical tests confirmed the injury in his left thigh.
Mingueza has featured in 39 games for Barcelona’s first team and helped Spain’s Olympic team to a silver medal this summer in Tokyo.
The 22-year-old played in just two matches at the Olympics, however, having to come off in both and playing a total of just 32 minutes.
In April, Barcelona activated an extension clause in Mingueza’s contract, tying him to the Blaugrana until June 30, 2023.
