Barcelona have confirmed that Jeremy Mathieu will undergo surgery after he suffered knee damage playing for France this week.

Mathieu replaced Patrice Evra at half-time of the 4-2 friendly win over Russia on Tuesday but was withdrawn just eight minutes later with clear discomfort.

The 32-year-old has since undergone tests which have confirmed a partial tear of the meniscus of his right knee. He will have an operation on Thursday.

“The club will subsequently issue a statement to explain the result of this operation,” Barcelona confirmed in a statement.

Mathieu could now face several weeks on the sidelines, meaning he could miss the remainder of Barca’s season and be forced to sit out his home Euro 2016 finals.
