Clement Lenglet paid tribute to injured team-mate Moussa Wague after opening the scoring for Barcelona against Real Valladolid on Tuesday night.

The French defender powerfully headed a Lionel Messi cross past goalkeeper Jordi Masip on 22 minutes to net his first of the season for the Catalan giants.

Lenglet celebrated by heading over to the touchline and holding up a Wague shirt in support of the defender who has been ruled out of action for nine months.

Wague required surgery to “repair and reconstruct patellar ligament in his right knee” in Barcelona after suffering a serious injury while in action for Greek side PAOK.

The Catalan giants subsequently confirmed he would miss the next nine months.
