Aston Villa defender Carlos Cuellar has been dealt a massive blow as it was announced he would miss the next month after tearing a hamstring.
The Spanish star picked up the injury in Villa’s 1-1 draw with Blackpool this week, and will have to watch from the sidelines for the next month.
Villa fans will be encouraged by the news that Villa don’t have a game for the next two weeks as they still wait to find out who their opponents will be in the FA Cup 5th round.
They will also be pleased to hear England international Luke Young will be back to action soon.
Managed Gerard Houllier said, “Cuellar is going to be out for four weeks. It is a hamstring tear.
“Luke Young has trained fully for the first time this week and we have a practice game lined up for him.
“The game with Blackburn could be too soon for him but it could be very soon after that.”
