Team to return from Valladolid on Friday

www.fcbarcelona.cat


The Barša squad will not be able to return from Valladolid until Friday morning because by the time the game on Thursday night is over, the local airport will be closed.


The late start for Thursday’s away fixture at Valladolid (22.00h) and the fact that the local airport closes at a certain time means the team will be staying overnight in the Castilian city. Rijkaard and his squad will be flying back first thing Friday morning.

Straight to training

Precedents last season

This situation is nothing new for Frank Rijkaard. Last season the same thing happened twice, after a league match away to Deportivo la Coru˝a and a Champions league match in Liverpool, Barša stayed overnight in the away city and flew back on the morning after.
