Valencia´s on-loan Barca midfielder Nico Gonzalez suffers fractured metatarsal

    Nico Gonzalez will be sidelined after breaking his metatarsal during Valencia’s 2-1 loss to Villarreal on New Year’s Eve.

    The midfielder, who joined Valencia from Barcelona on a season-long loan in August, caused damage in the second half of Saturday’s game.

    On the first day of the New Year, Valencia revealed the extent of the damage Niko had suffered.

    The club said in a statement: “Nico Gonzalez has been diagnosed with a fracture in his left fifth metatarsal, sustained in a La Liga match against Villarreal.

    “The player and the Valencia medical team will evaluate the treatment options for the injury.”

    Niko, who turns 21 on Tuesday, has made 13 La Liga appearances for Gennaro Gattuso’s team this season and has only started six of them.

    He signed a long-term contract with Barça before moving temporarily to their La Liga rivals.
