'Absolute joke': Some Manchester City fans fuming over 'ridiculous' news pre-Burnley
Manchester City fans have been left reeling by news of Ferran Torres’ foot injury whilst on international duty with Spain.
The 21-year-old limped off during La Roja’s UEFA Nations League semi-final win over Italy, having scored twice in the first half.
Torres was subsequently passed fit to start against France in Sunday’s final, though he was forced off late on in the 2-1 defeat.
Now, City have announced that their player has picked up a “small fracture” on his right foot.
“He has since returned to Manchester for tests and will continue to be monitored,” added the club statement.
According to BBC Sport, Torres is set to miss four to six weeks of action.
In the next six weeks, City face Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League and host Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
And City fans weren’t pleased with the news:

Ridiculous that Spain played him injured.— Liam willingham (@WillinghamLiam) October 14, 2021
Torres gone the same way as KDB. Obviously injured but played the next game causing more complications. International duty is an absolute joke. Yeah, players want to represent their country but not to the detriment of the club that pays them ffs. Rehab at City’s expense #mcfc— Paul (@El_Mago71) October 14, 2021
