Valencia's Topal out for two weeks

Valencia's Turkish international Mehmet Topal will be sidelined for two weeks after he sprained his right ankle, the Spanish club have announced.

The 24-year-old, who joined Valencia from Galatasaray in May on a five-year contract, picked up the injury during a training session on Tuesday.

Turkey coach Guus Hiddink left Topal out of his 27-man squad for the UEFA EURO 2012 qualifiers against Germany and Azerbaijan on 8 and 12 October.

Valencia are currently in first place in the Spanish league with 16 points after six matches, one point ahead of Villarreal.
