Barcelona midfielder Arthur has played down concerns that he would miss time in this year’s Copa América following an injury in a tune-up match against Honduras.
The Brazilian took to social media to reassure a fan who said she was crying after he got hurt. “Don’t cry, I’m fine,” Arthur replied.

Brazil’s coach, Tite, had already told reporters that he was sure that the blow had been much less serious than first feared. Arthur is a key cog for his team.
Brazil start their campaign by playing Bolivia this Friday.
