Thierry Correia out for a month, Cillessen back

Valencia CF managed to break the away 'curse'  and get a draw against Real Betis, but in doing so 3 players limped off the field and had to be replaced as they all got injured. 

The first one who got injured was Thierry Correia, he jumped to block a possible cross from an opposition player, but dropped down awkwardly, with his feet and knee at an awkward angle. He was diagnosed today with a sprained lateral ligament from the knee and will be out for a whole month. 

Good thing that we just got Piccini back from injury, so we have a replacement now, even though it would have been fine if Wass played there as well. 

Carlos Soler limped off in the second half, he suffered some sort of thigh injury and its been confirmed that he still has discomfort, so he is most likely going to miss our next match in midweek, though should be healed by the weekend for our second match this week.

Finally we hace Uros Racic who also suffered an injury, but from the looks of it was just muscle cramps, even with that sometimes it can damage the muscle and you'd need at least 3-5 days to recover, but from what we know so far it looks like he is going to be okay and is likely to feature in the next match.

Now for some good news in the injury department, Jasper Cillessen trained with the group and has been recovering well, so apart from his fitness level he should be otherwise ready for our next match.
