Barcelona coach Xavi welcomes Busquets back for Man Utd showdown

Barcelona coach Xavi has welcomed Sergi Busquets back to training.

The Barça captain, who completed the full session with the group this Saturday, has been included in Xavi’s squad to play against Cadiz at Camp Nou on Sunday.

The absence of Pedri has disrupted Xavi’s plans, but with the recovery of Busquets, he will be able to fill in for the Canary Islander. He is not expected to start against Cádiz, but he will have minutes to arrive at Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Thursday in the second leg of the Europa League Playoffs.

Xavi said, “His absence is always noticeable because of his tactical ability, because of the way he recovers balls, you are always in the opposition half thanks to his work, he doesn’t lose balls in the build-up area, he always chooses the best pass. His return is great news.”
