Carles Puyol: Missed Euro 2012 through injury

The 34-year-old defender, who has suffered a series of injuries over the past year, had arthoscopic surgery on his right knee in the Catalan capital on Thursday.

"Carles Puyol underwent an arthroscopy on Thursday evening in order to clean up his right knee," said a club statement.

"Puyol's return will be determined by the progress of his recovery."

Puyol had already been overlooked for Spain's World Cup qualifiers against Finland and France later this month.

Barcelona travel to Paris for the first leg of their last-eight tie on 2 April, with the return at the Nou Camp eight days later.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
