185646hp2MADRID – Barcelona defender Carles Puyol underwent more knee surgery on Friday which is likely to rule him out of the Champions League quarter-final against Paris Saint-Germain.

“Carles Puyol underwent an arthroscopy on Thursday evening in order to  clean up his right knee,” said a club statement.
“Puyol’s return will be determined by the progress of his recovery.”
Puyol had already been overlooked for Spain’s World Cup qualifiers against  Finland and France later this month.
