Fabiano out for up to three weeks

MADRID - Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano - linked with Chelsea and Manchester United in recent weeks - will be out for up to three weeks after picking up an ankle injury in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Real Valladolid, the La Liga club said on Monday.

The Brazil international will miss the Andalusians' Champions League match at home to Rangers on Wednesday and this weekend's league trip to Sporting Gijon and is a doubt for the game against visiting Getafe the following weekend.

Sevilla have already qualified for the Champions League knockout phase from Group G and are fourth in La Liga with 27 points from 13 matches.
