Barcelona: Fans want Junior Firpo to start after injury to Jordi Alba

Barcelona: Fans want Junior Firpo to start after injury to Jordi Alba - La Liga

Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba has picked up a hamstring injury and will be sidelined for two to three weeks, according to the club’s official website

The Spain international sustained the injury during the Catalans’ 0-0 draw with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.

After early indications suggested that the 30-year-old would be sidelined for over a month with this injury, AS (via Sport English) report that the knock is in fact not as bad as first feared, and that he should return to action “between 10-15 days”.

That does still mean that Alba will miss the Blaugrana’s upcoming La Liga fixtures against Granada, Villarreal and Getafe – with all three of those games coming in the next two weeks.

This does leave the left-back berth wide open for Junior Firpo to fill after the 23-year-old signed from Real Betis in the summer. Firpo is yet to start a game for Barca this term, but fans are hopeful that they’ll get to see more of him with Alba temporarily ruled out of action.

Barca fans, are you excited about seeing Firpo play more? Drop a comment below!
