After impressing during the first few games, the Frenchman is forced to take a break.
Real Betis midfielder Nabil Fekir is set for a spell on the sidelines with muscular injury.
Real Betis will be without midfielder Nabil Fekir in the coming weeks. The club announced on Monday that both the French player and and defender Sinei have been diagnosed with muscular injuries.
“Real Betis midfielder Nabil Fekir was forced to leave the match last Friday against CA Osasuna due to some discomfort he was feeling in his leg”, said the statement.
The medical tests undergone by the footballer have revealed that Fekir has a level I myofascial muscular injury in the biceps femoris of his left thigh. The time he will be out will depend on the evolution of the injury. On his part, Sidnei did not travel to Pamplona due to an injury he sustained in a training session.”
No timetable is set for either of their recoveries. Fekir has a level I myofascial muscular injury in the biceps femoris of his left thigh. He left Betis’ last match against Osasuna with discomfort before getting the diagnosis.
Fekir joined the La Liga side from Lyon this summer and has scored twice as Betis have struggled out of the gates to 14th place. It was set to be one of the biggest transfers of the 2018 summer transfer window, the French World Cup winner joining the Jurgen Klopp revolution at Anfield.
But less than 24 hours after Fekir started preparing for his public unveiling as a Liverpool player, the transfer was cancelled amid claims the player had failed his medical because of the effects of a 2015 knee injury.
