Samuel Umtiti suffers knee injury in training, out of Barcelona’s clash with Atletico Madrid


The France international moved to Camp Nou from Lyon in the off-season, and has started three of Barca’s four league games so far this term.

Barca revealed on Tuesday that Umtiti has sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee, with the 22-year-old’s return to action dependent on the progression of the issue.

Umtiti made three appearances for his country at Euro 2016 on home soil, including in the final as France were beaten 1-0 by Portugal after extra-time.
