It’s an injury that will take a few weeks to heal. He just started his recovery working with the medical staff we’ll get him back as soon as safely as we can.

Of course, Paul has been very important for us and we’re not going to take any risks. [so it is] A few weeks definitely. You never want to be injured and, especially, now Paul was really finding his form and enjoying his football.

For us, we just have to take as many points and wins as possible, when you lose players. We’ve been very healthy and strong for a long period so we can’t moan too much.
