Sergi Roberto gets the medical green light to play against Málaga
The Catalan footballer trained with normality and assures he does not feel any discomfort
Sergi Roberto will be available this Saturday for the Spanish league match against Málaga at the Camp Nou. The La Masía graduate missed his national team’s two latest matches versus Macedonia and the friendly facing England, in order to fully recover from his Achilles tendons troubles.
The polyvalent footballer was able to return to Barça’s trainings with his teammates on this Thursday morning session and showed no signs of discomfort or pain, bringing the much needed good news to the medical staff and Luis Enrique, alongside the recoveries of Gerard Piqué, Jordi Alba and Jérémy Mathieu for the upcoming La Liga game.
It is worth noting the peculiar situation in the team’s right-back position where Sergi Roberto has been used almost exclusively this season, given Aleix Vidal’s exclusion from Luis Enrique’s plans and his likely exit on the next winter transfer window.
