In the friendly against Chelsea, Gerard Piqué noticed some discomfort in the left abductor that still does not let him train
After it turns it of pre-season by Japan for the dispute of the Rakuten Cup -competition that closed with a defeat in front of Chelsea and with a tie in front of the Vissel Kobe- the FC Barcelona has restarted the trainings in the city condal with two sessions programmed for the morning and the afternoon of this Tuesday and another for the morning of the Wednesday.
Ernesto Valverde has been able to have the members of the first team that did not contest the Glass America 2019 with an only absence: the one of Gerard Hammered. The central Catalan follows between cottons since resintió of the abductor left in the party of debut of pre-season against Chelsea.
In fact, the defence could not contest neither an alone minute of the party that the Barcelona contested against the Vissel Kobe and, during the session of this Tuesday in the morning, has exercised in solitary in the gymnasium. Still it is prompt if it will arrive to time to play against the Arsenal in the presentation of the Barça in front of his fans with the dispute of the Trofeu Joan Gamper, by what his evolution will mark the availability.
What seems sure is that Gerard Hammered will go back to be a big bastion for the defence of the FC Barcelona this season. The past campaign, surrendered to an exceptional level and expects that, to his 32 years, keep on being a key footballer, as well as the mirror in which Jean-Clair Todibo and the rest of young defenders can look.
The supports of Hammered in defence
Gerard Hammered, to little that keep the level of the last campaigns, will go back to be immovable in the defence of the FC Barcelona. Now they remain the doubts of who will accompany him in the left profile, with Clément Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti like big candidates. The two French have delivered the titularity during the last campaigns.
In concidiones normal, the already recovered Umtiti would have to go back to win the place, but Lenglet played to a good level the past course and will not put him the easy things. Besides, the already mentioned Todibo will be the fourth head office of the team culé and, apparently in pre-season, can be a big complement for his mates.
