Surgeon Ramon Cugat confirms he'll be examining Barcelona crock Pique

Famed surgeon Ramon Cugat is joining the ticket of Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font.

At his presentation, Cugat also confirmed he will be running his eye over Gerard Pique's injured knee this week as the Barca defender seeks a second opinion. There's fears the veteran could be missing for eight months.

Cugat declared, "Until I see him, a diagnosis cannot be made and then we will decide which treatment to follow.

"To speak now of time limits is to play the lottery, because each knee is different. We must be prudent, see the affectation of the cruciate and then we will decide the treatment to follow, if we have to operate or bet on a less traumatic approach.

"We still don't know what treatment we will follow, whether surgical or not."
