Tests carried out on Monday on Barcelona ‘s Dutch soccer players Memphis Depay and Frenkie De Jong confirmed that the striker suffers an injury to the femoral biceps of the left thigh and the midfielder, an elongation in the semitendinosus of the same thigh.
Both players are, for the moment, low and their evolution will mark their availability for Barcelona’s next commitments, according to the medical services of the Barça club.
The Dutch internationals suffered from these muscle ailments in the Nations League match that their team played against Poland last Thursday.
Neither De Jong nor Memphis participated in the victory that the Netherlands signed on Sunday against Belgium (1-0) with which the Dutch team sealed their place in the final phase of the League of Nations.
The losses of the two Dutch footballers are added to those already known by the Uruguayan Ronald Araujo, who will undergo surgery to treat an avulsion of the adductor longus tendon of the right thigh, and the Frenchman Jules Koundé, who suffers an injury to the biceps femoris of the Left thigh.
The four footballers, who were injured with their respective national teams, did not exercise in the training session that the Barça first team carried out this Monday at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper.
The presence of internationals Ousmane Dembélé, Robert Lewandowski and Andreas Christensen was the main novelty in the first training session of the week.
