Deportivo Alaves sweat over Mubarak Wakaso injury ahead Girona Copa Del Rey clash


Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso is a doubt for Deportivo Alaves Copa Del Rey clash against Girona on Wednesday after sustaining an injury in the victory over Villareal on Sunday.

The hard-tackling enforcer picked the injury after a collision with Ximo Navarro which resulted in the Andalusian defender evacuated to a hospital with a jaw injury that does not seem to be serious.

Despite lasting full throttle without problems, the 28-year-old underwent medical tests immediately after the game.

The medical report shows a “grade I-II sprain in the acromioclavicular joint of his left shoulder.”

Wakaso is therefore likely to sit out tomorrow’s Spanish cup game against Girona.
