Barcelona A hip issue was announced on Sunday morning
On the morning of Barcelona’s match away at Villarreal, the Catalan club announced that Junior Firpo will not be able to feature due to a hip injury.
The left-back had initially been included in the matchday squad, but now he’ll have to watch on from the outside.
“Junior Firpo has discomfort in his right hip and is out of this Sunday’s game against Villarreal,” a club statement said.
With Jordi Alba fit and available, this isn’t too big a issue for Barcelona in the short term, but it is another blow for the full-back who has had a tough first season in Blaugrana colours.
