Kessie becomes another name on Barca’s long injury list

Xavi is dealing with a lot of injury setbacks at Barcelona and he will now miss the services of Franck Kessie alongside some of the crucial players of the team.

Barcelona has been dealt a lot of injury blows in the last few weeks and it keeps getting worse.

Franck Kessie

is now another player to have sustained an injury as the club confirmed that he will not be present in Wednesday’s training session, just after their Champions League loss at the hands of Inter.

The Blaugrana released a statement about the injury he sustained, which read:

"The first team player Franck Kessie has a strained adductor muscle in his right thigh. He is ruled out and his recovery will dictate his return. The injury occurred in training on Wednesday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper."

Before Kessie’s injury was confirmed, the Catalans also revealed the news regarding

Andreas Christensen

, who will be sidelined for an uncertain period. That made him the seven key player to be out of action for Barca with the other ones being Ronald Araujo, Jules Kounde, Hector Bellerin, Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay also out.

Xavi is struggling with the injury blows as they come at an awful time since they have many important matches to get ready for in the following weeks, such as El Clasico and a number of important clashes in the group stage of the Champions League.
