Fractures vertebra in loss Paulista suffered multiple transverse fractures of the vertebra in his lower back, his team announced Wednesday.
Impact Paulista will be out for at least six weeks after taking this nasty injury during Tuesday's loss to Sevilla. For someone who has worked as hard but with so little as Paulista, with the joint fifth-most interceptions and joint-most clearances but only one clean sheet kept all season, a big gap is left in the defense for Los Che. In the case of the Paulista's replacement, timing has worked out well with Mouctar Diakhaby and Eliaquim Mangala both healthy and Hugo Guillamon likely to return soon. With a successful recovery, Paulista could be back at some point in February though more information should help clarify a more specific date for his recovery.
