Barcelona striker David Villa has been admitted to hospital this evening with kidney stones, the La Liga leaders have confirmed.
A club statement said:
“The Club’s Medical Services have announced that David Villa was admitted to hospital due to a nephritic colic infection. The player will undergo kidney stone treatment in the coming hours.
At this point, David Villa is doubtful for the match against Granada on Saturday.”
I would think that Villa would be a doubt for next week’s Champions League match with AC Milan, never mind the game against Granada at the weekend.
It has been a tough season for Villa as he has tried to return from the broken leg that he suffered in the 2011 Fifa Club World Cup. His place in the Barcelona line-up has been taken by Pedro and Cesc, and the lack of playing time has made many of believe that he will leave the Camp Nou this summer for the Premier League.
