Banega faces six months out

Valencia midfielder Ever Banega is facing a long spell on the sidelines after breaking the tibia and fibula in his left leg in a freak car accident.

Banega, 23, will undergo surgery on the injury and Valencia said in a statement that the Argentina international could be absent for around six months, although they will give an update after the operation.

Although Valencia only confirmed that Banega had been hurt in an accident involving his own car after leaving training, Spanish media are reporting that the injury occurred when the midfielder failed to put the handbrake on at a petrol station and, after the car moved, his leg was caught between the wheel and the curb.

Valencia are third in the Primera Division standings and hold a 1-0 lead over Stoke after the away leg of their Europa League last-32 tie.
