Touré back on Thursday


Following on from Ivory Coast’s surprise quarterfinal exit from the Africa Cup, Touré is expected to report back for training with the Barça squad on Thursday.

Baring any unforeseen circumstances, Josep Guardiola will welcome Touré back to training on Thursday. Tournament favourites Ivory Coast were eliminated 3-2 by Algeria.

The squad’s other African international, Keita, is already back in Barcelona after Mali were knocked out earlier in the competition.

World Club Cup

Touré’s last match for FC Barcelona was on 19th December in the final of the World Club Cup in Abu Dhabi against Estudiantes, which Barça won 2-1.

In Gijon, Keita, no; Touré, yes

If required, Guardiola can call on Touré for this weekend’s league game against Sporting Gijon. However, Keita received his fifth yellow card in the match against Valladolid and is suspended.
