Barcelona, April 2 (IANS) Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets was back at training on Monday, after a leg injury kept him sidelined for around three weeks, and is likely to play in two days’ time against Roma in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals.
Busquets, 29, sustained a fractured phalanx of the fifth toe of his right foot during the Champions League round of 16 second leg game against Chelsea last month, which prevented him from participating in any of his club’s or the Argentinian national team’s games, reports Efe.
“In good news, midfielder Sergio Busquets trained as part of the group, alongside his first team teammates and Barça B players,” the club announced.
Barcelona B players Carles Alena, Jorge Cuenca, Dani Morer, Ballou Jean-Yves Tabla, Samu Araujo and Riqui Puig also took part in the training session at the Joan Gamper Sports City.
Another training session is to be held on Tuesday prior to Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde’s press conference.
