Puyol gets green light


Carles Puyol has recovered from his leg injury and will be able to turn out in the Sporting Gijon game. All available players will be on hand for the fixture.

The good news to come out of this Saturday morning’s training behind closed doors at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper sports complex is that club captain Carles Puyol has been given the green light by club doctors after recovering from a knock he picked up against Espanyol. That means Guardiola can call on a full squad with the exceptions of Milito, who is still sidelined with injury, and Márquez and Piqué, who are suspended.

The Catalan central defender didn’t train with his team-mates but instead did special work in the gym.
