Defender Josetxo out for Osasuna

Club Atlético Osasuna will be without defender Josetxo Romero for five weeks because of a thigh injury.

Training injury 
Josetxo missed Sunday's home defeat by RC Recreativo de Huelva after suffering the injury in training last week, and the club revealed the extent of the problem in a statement yesterday. "Scans have confirmed that the player has a tear in his left thigh," it said.

Bottoming out
The 1-0 reverse against Recreativo left the Pamplona club, who narrowly avoided relegation last term, bottom of the Primera División with one win from eight games. Josetxo, 25, has made four first-team appearances this season.
