Koeman revealed he is unsure when the Spain international will return to action for the Catalan outfit.

“Out of respect for the player, I am not the person to speak about his recovery,” Koeman said, as per the Mirror.

“You have to have respect for him and I am not in favour of rushing things.

“When there is an update, we will communicate it from the club.

“The most important thing is that he recovers calmly. He has a lot of future ahead of him and you have to do things right.”
