Athletic Bilbao winger Iker Muniain will miss the Basques' Copa del Rey final against Barcelona after suffering a cruciate ligament injury, the club confirmed on Tuesday.


Muniain had to be stretchered off in tears during Athletic's 2-0 defeat to Sevilla on Saturday and is set to be out for at least six months.


"A torn cruciate ligament has been detected in his left knee," said a statement on the club's website after the player underwent a scan.


"The estimated time out oscillates between six and seven months."


Muniain has only one senior Spanish cap to his name, but was part of the under-21 sides that won the European Championships in 2011 and 2013.


Athletic face Barca in the Cup final for the third time in seven years on May 30.

The left winger posted a picture and message on his Instagram account confirming the prognosis and thanking fans for their messages of support.
