Riquelme misses Turkey trip

FC Barcelona midfield player Juan Riquelme will miss the Group H match against Galatasaray SK.

FC Barcelona's Juan Riquelme has been ruled out of tomorrow's UEFA Champions League Group H match against Galatasaray SK because of injury.

Bad timing
The attacking midfield player did not travel to Turkey after picking up the leg muscle injury during yesterday's training session. The injury comes as a blow to Riquelme after his promising second-half performance against RCD Espanyol on Saturday where he played just behind the strikers.

Attacking force
"I will always play anywhere. I always try to do the best for my team," the Argentinian said following Saturday's 2-0 win before adding that he found it a pleasure to play alongside players such as Javier Saviola or Patrick Kluivert.
