Barca's Affelay out with knee injury


Barcelona — Barcelona says its Dutch international midfielder Ibrahim Afellay has torn a ligament in his left knee and will undergo surgery on Friday.

The Spanish champions said late Thursday that he picked up the injury during a training session. Club doctors did not indicate how long he will be sidelined.

The 25-year-old Afellay had only played twice this season after recovering from a torn muscle during the preseason.

He had been expected to help fill in for the injured Alexis Sanchez.
