In which Carles Puyol, who was making his Barcelona return after shaking off a persistent knee knack, dislocates his elbow after falling heavily and awkwardly during the 78th minute of his side’s 2-0 Champions League victory over Benfica last night (WARNING: This one ain’t pretty)…

Barcelona are yet to announce the full extent of Puyol’s injury, though he’s now expected to miss at least the next couple of months – ruling him out of the upcoming Clasico.

Get well soon Carles old boy.

    With Dani Alves, Valdes and Busquets on the field and this had to happen to Puyol… get well soon!

    He’s literally one of my favourite players ever, but he’s picked up so many different injuries recently that surely he cant be in the best of physical shape. His body must be held together with glue and old tape. It pains me to say it but perhaps its time for him to call it a day. If not now, soon.

    Greg, despite his recent injury record, this particular one was just down to bad luck; I don’t think his elbows are particularly weaker than any given 20 year old.

    Plus, he’s got a recent history of cutting every one of his injury prognostications at least in half; he’s still supposed to be injured based on his last prognosis. I don’t see him being out for long due to an elbow or having it affect his career…
