Alves definitely out


Dani Alves will not be playing in Gijˇn after failing to complete the last training session before the game on Saturday. Sergio Busquets, TourÚ and Jeffren have all been declared fit.

2010-01-23_PARTIDO_08.JPGDani Alves pulled a leg muscle in training on Thursday and although tests have revealed there is no serious injury, after just a few minutes of training today, the coaching staff decided he is no condition to take part in Saturday’s game against Sporting Gijˇn.

Seventeen starts

Alves is a fundamental part of the team. This season he has made 30 official appearances already, including the last 17 on the trot. The only game he has missed this season was the home win against Mallorca (4-2) on November 7.

Jeffren and Busquets are back

But it was not all grim news for Guardiola. Sergio Busquets and Jeffren have both been given the all-clear. Sergio is back after picking up a renal injury against Sevilla (4-0), two games ago, while Jeffren was injured in the pre-Christmas friendly in Kuwait. He is back with the team, but nevertheless, has not been selected for this weekend’s match.
