Medical: Iniesta suffered stomach virus

Barcelona's medical staff has after yesterday's medical tests announced that Barcelona player Andrés Iniesta (25) has suffered a stomach virus during his holidays.

The player is nevertheless recovering well from his thigh injury and will progressively join the group training sessions over the coming days. Although it's not yet clear when the player will return to action, it is expected that he could be ready for the Chivas friendly on Sunday 9 August.

Iniesta torn a quadriceps muscle on the front of his right thigh during the league game against Villarreal on Sunday 10 May and although he played the Champions League final against Manchester United on Wednesday 27 May, he has never fully recovered from that injury. On Friday 5 June, the medical staff of the Spanish football federation confirmed that the player has torn a muscle in his thigh and he was then expected to be out for the next six to eight weeks.
