Valencia lose Vicente to ankle ligaments

January 16, 2006

MADRID, Jan 16 (Reuters) - Valencia winger Vicente will be out of action for between four and six weeks with an ankle injury.

The 24-year-old Spaniard damaged the ligaments in his right ankle during his side's 2-0 victory over Osasuna on Saturday.

The midfielder, who is a regular in the national side, missed most of last season after suffering a similar injury to his left ankle.

Valencia moved up to third in the table, three points behind Osasuna and 10 behind Barcelona.
