Barcelona are going to have to cope without Frenkie de Jong for a little while after announcing he is out with a leg injury.

The Dutchman asked to be substituted in the 4-0 win over Real Mallorca and has not featured for Quique Setien’s side since.

He was ruled out of the trip to Sevilla with the injury and Barca have now offered an update on his condition.

“The clinical follow-up on Frenkie De Jong has uncovered an injury in the soleus of his right leg. The evolution of the injury will condition the player’s availability. Barça’s No.21 is in his first season as a player at FC Barcelona, and has played a total of 38 games, 27 of them in the league.

“Thus far, the Dutchman has only missed three matches in the domestic competition, the last one coming this past Friday against Sevilla.”

Barca have not said anything about when De Jong will return yet which suggests it might be a few weeks and we should see more of Arthur, Ivan Rakitic and maybe even Riqui Puig over the next few games.
