Samper, Vermaelen begin to rejoin Barcelona group training
Barcelona, Jan 12: Barcelona’s Spanish midfielder Sergi Samper and Belgian Thomas Vermaelen partly rejoined the team training in preparation for the upcoming La Liga match against Eibar, the Spanish club announced.
Both players participated in some of the day’s practice while still recovering from injuries that have kept them out of some games.
“It was good to see Samper and Vermaelen undertaking part of the training with the group again,” Barcelona said in a statement on its official website on Friday night, reports Efe news.
Samper’s and Vermaelen’s return, albeit limited, was good news for Barcelona, which Thursday lost the first leg of the Spanish Cup round of 16 in an upset to Levante 2-1.
Barcelona leads the La Liga table with 40 points, five points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid.
