Manchester City’s Torres fractured his foot while on duty in Spain

The Premier League club said on Thursday that Manchester City striker Ferran Torres suffered a minor fracture of his right foot while on duty in the Spanish national team.

Torres scored two goals in Spain’s 2-1 victory over Italy in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals, but limped out of the field after a foot injury in the second half.

The 21-year-old was initially questioned before defeating France 2-1 in the final on Sunday.

Manchester City did not provide a timetable for Torres’ return and said in a statement that he will undergo further testing in Manchester.

“The city striker scored twice in Spain’s UEFA Nations League semi-final victory over Italy, and started in the final against France, but he suffered a minor fracture. He has since returned to Manchester for testing and will continue to accept Monitoring,” the club said in a statement.

Spanish media reported that he may be absent from the game for six weeks. On Saturday, Manchester City will face Burnley in the league.
