Sevilla Confirm Luis Fabiano Will Be Out For Six Weeks

Fabiano out for several weeks, but Sevilla claim knee injury is not serious...
Luis Fabiano has been ruled out for six weeks with a knee injury after tests confirmed he has suffered a strain to his semitendinosus muscle, Sevilla said in a statement on Monday.

An extract of the announcement on Sevilla's official website reads:

"Good news from the infirmary. Luis Fabiano's injury is not that serious as first thought. He has suffered a strain to the semitendinosus muscle in his knee which will keep him out of action for six weeks."

Fabiano was forced to come off in the 2-0 loss at Athletic Bilbao on Saturday after taking a knock on 71 minutes.

He will miss key games including the weekend clash against league leaders Barcelona.
