Barcelona David Villa Breaks Leg

So not everything is rosy and wonderful in Barçalandia. David Villa, Barcelona striker and owner of a questionable soul patch, broke his shinbone during his teams 4-0 rout of Al Sadd (from Qatar) during the semi-finals of the FIFA Club World Cup. You can watch the not-as-gruesome-as-we’d-expected video of the injury above.

Villa went down six minutes before the half-time whistle, and was carted off. The 30-year-old suffered a “fracture to the tibia in his left leg” and will likely be out for 4-5 months, meaning he will miss most of La Liga and Barcelona’s attempt to win back to back Champions League titles. For the Spain fans amongst you, Villa might make it back in time for the Euro 2012.
