The FC Barcelona confirmed this Monday that Frenkie of Jong suffers one an elongación in the semitendinoso of the left thigh. Although they have not given time estimated of drop, foresees that only it will lose the party of this Saturday 1 October against the RCD Mallorca (21:00 hours CEST). In theory, will not have problems to go in in the announcement for the clash in front of the Inter of Milan by the third day of the phase of groups of the Champions League.

The Dutch midfield player came being very used by Xavi Hernández, more from the bench, but with an important quantity of minutes. In the last party before the stop of selections, in front of the Elche, appeared in the alignment like defensive pivote to give rest to Sergio Busquets and was one of the most stood out of the Barça. A week before, was chosen like the 'MVP' of the crash in front of the Cádiz. Now, it will be necessary to expect how goes back after his recovery and if the medical services will opt because it go little by little to avoid relapses.

In any case, the trainer egarense will see forced to implement several changes in his alignment. Although by 'in front' of Frenkie are Sergio Busquets, Pedri González and Gavi, the three will arrive 'tired' after the party of Spain against Portugal this Tuesday and is likely that Xavi leave them rest or that, at least, any split from the bench. The Dutch is the fourth midfield player and had been headline 'fixed', but in front of his absence appear two key names: Franck Kessié and Pablo Tower.

Both would have a lot of ballots to play against the Majorcan picture this Saturday. The one of Coast of Márfil already played to title against the Elche and did not have his more hit afternoon. In fact, Xavi had to take him out in the rest because it brushed the expulsion (by double yellow) in two occasions. However, it is a midfield player with a lot of resources that could 'colarse' in the eleven of the Barça in case that the one of Terrassa decide to give rest to his indisputable players thinking in the appointment against the Inter of Milan.

Opportunity for Pablo Tower?

In addition to the ex of the AC Milan, Pablo Tower also could add his first opportunity in LaLiga with the Barça. Up to now, only it has played nine minutes in the Champions League and this weekend debuted with the filial under the orders of Rafa Márquez, the one who aimed that the midfield player will be still in dynamics of first team and, with Xavi Hernández, will decide when 'will go down' to help to the Barça Atlètic.

"When the first team decide, we will be happy of the life", said the Mexican the Saturday, ensuring, besides, that "will be dynamic of first team and between Xavi and I will decide . More they that we". It foresees that it form part of the announcement of the egarense for the crash against the Mallorca and, possibly, could see minutes.
