Bordeaux's midfield problems have been compounded by Albert Riera's injury.Bordeaux's midfield selection problems have been compounded by an injury to Albert Riera.
The Spaniard dislocated his elbow in Saturday's Ligue 1 clash with Lille and spent a night in hospital.
He must now undergo further examinations to uncover the full extent of the injury he suffered.
Riera is still likely to miss several weeks of the season and adds to coach Michel Pavon's midfield headache.
With Pascal Feindouno having joined St Etienne, Pavon is desperately short of a creative spark in his engine room.
Manchester City target Camel Meriem is also currently injured with a foot complaint which ruled him out of the Lille clash.
The playmaker's foot has swollen so significantly that he has been unable to put on his boots.
