Barcelona’s Belgian defender Thomas Vermaelen will be sidelined for around six weeks after picking up a right hamstring injury while on international duty, the Spanish giants said Monday. The 32-year-old, who has been hit by a string of injuries since signing for the Catalan club in 2014, limped off the field in the second half of Belgium’s 2-1 win over Switzerland in the Nations League on Friday. “Tests carried out this morning confirm that first team player Thomas Verma-elen has a right hamstring injury. He will be sidelined for approximately six weeks,” the club said. (AFP)
