    Vermaelen out for 4-6 months

    FC Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen will miss the rest of the season after it was revealed he requires surgery on a hamstring injury.

    Vermaelen, who was signed from Arsenal in a deal worth around 15 mil. euros, has yet to feature for Barca this season.





    "First team footballer Thomas Vermaelen will undergo surgery on his right thigh muscle by doctor Sakari Orava next Tuesday in Finland," a statement on Barcelona's official website read.

    "The estimated recovery time is 4 to 6 months."

    Following the retirement of club legend Carles Puyol at the end of last season, Barca brought in both Vermaelen and Jeremy Mathieu from Valencia as defensive cover.

    Hope our captain in the CL final does the right thing and give the armband to Thomas when he subs in the 90th min.

    Vermaelen will be given the Abidal-like honor of lifting "Big Ears" first instead of Xavi.

    This sums up zubi's work as a sporting director very well. A waste of time and money.

    Half a billion euros per year organization, and Zubi is the best we can do? I smell corruption in our board.

    Do citizens of Barcelona actually care about football or not? Seems to me like most Catalans have a "DGAF" attitude when it comes to sports so they couldn't care less if their team gets screwed over by a bunch of crooks.

    They took a punt on Vermaelen and at moment who knows how that will work out, but it was never a straight swap between Vermalen and Benatia.
