“Good news for a good start”

Marc Guillén

Daniel Alves is delighted to be able to play the opening league match away to Numancia. He spoke exclusively to Barça TV and www.fcbarcelona.cat about the amnesty announced by the Spanish FA.

The Spanish FA has amnestied all the players who had accumulated less than a four-match ban from last season. As a result, Alves – who had a one-match ban left over – will be able to play the first league game of the season.

“I didn’t expect it”

Ready to face Numancia

“The diagnosis of a grade one strain has been confirmed and it is evolving well. He’s already doing water exercises and field work. We won’t rush his return but he certainly won’t have any problem to play against Numancia. We hope that he’ll be able to play against the Poles but we’ll have to wait until the final stage of the recovery process”.
