Barcelona monumentally angry over Alexia Putellas injury

The Catalan club are furious with the Spanish national team over her knee injury

Alexia Putellas’ injury has been taken badly by the Spanish national team, but also by FC Barcelona. In the latter case sadness has been accompanied by a monumental rage because it’s not the first time a Barcelona player has been seriously injured on international duty and they don’t think it’s just chance.

Barcelona sources think the players ‘work too hard’ and the ‘training sessions are different’ to those at Barcelona, where they take a lot of care over every detail, and make prevention important.

The Spanish Ballon d’Or winner suffered an ACL injury in training on Tuesday and could be out for 10-12 months, a big blow for Barcelona, who lose their captain for next season.

In the last few months Bruna Vilamala and Cata Coll have also been injured while on international duty, along with Mariona.
