PSV Eindhoven have confirmed that defender Alex will be out for around six weeks.
PSV Eindhoven have confirmed that defender Alex will miss their UEFA Champions League double-header with Liverpool.
The Brazilian central defender tore his hamstring at the weekend whilst in Eredivisie action against Excelsior.
Alex, who scored the goal which knocked Arsenal out in the previous round, was still hoping to be involved against Liverpool in the quarter-finals next month - but it has now been confirmed that he will not feature.
PSV have revealed that scans have confirmed a partial tear, which means Alex is likely to be sidelined for around six weeks.
