Barcelona new signing Arda Turan out indefinitely with ankle injury

Bad news (kind of) for Barcelona as the Blaugrana prepares for a week of two friendlies.

New team signing Arda Turan suffered a high ankle sprain on Friday's first training session and immediately left the activity to test the injury and start his rehabilitation process.

The club announced the news today:

Arda Turan twisted his ankle during Friday morning training and the verdict is that he has a second degree sprain in the external ligaments. He will now need to be subjected to more thorough testing which should shed more light on his availability over the next few days.

While it is bad news that a player is injured, since Arda won't play until January, we can calm down. Had this been two weeks before his debut, then it would be a huge concern.

Let's just hope things don't snowball from here.
