After the serious knee injury of Lasse Andersson his Spanish club FC Barcelona looking for a replacement.
FC Barcelona is combing the market looking for a possible replacement for the 22-year-old Danish left back Lasse Andersson, who due to a ligament injury in his left knee is out for 6 months (read more here).
Barça has gone to work immediately with a clear premise. They'll only sign a new player if they find someone of quality, who can really contribute, according to the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo. And the search for a successor is almost impossible because of the strict rules prevailing in the Champions League.
Any player who has played at a European club competition this season is ruled out and, making it even harder to find, the newcomer can not have played a single minute of official handball in any category since 1 February.
In February 2014 Barça was in the same situation, when Arpad Sterbik was injured. The club quickly found a replacement in the French goalkeeper Mickaël Robin, who fulfilled the requirements because he was the third pick in Montpellier after Thierry Omeyer and Arnaud Siffert.
