Returning from a big knee injury, Gerard Pique resumed training on Thursday and could be ready for the weekend’s shock against Real Madrid.
Victim of an injury to the ligament of the right knee last November, Gerard Pique could make his return in the eleven of Ronald Koeman this weekend for the Clasico against Real Madrid. Present in training on Thursday, the 34-year-old defender is expected to make a decision in the coming hours. The Mundo Deportivo report that the Blaugrana are also considering the possibility of having Pique play under infiltration on Saturday night (9 p.m.). In case of absence this weekend, he should be preserved until the Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao on April 17.
Note that Gerard Piqué had already resumed competition at the beginning of March, before relapsing. The Catalan was notably titular during the defeat of FC Barcelona at Camp Nou against Paris Saint-Germain (1-4), then the following weekend during the misstep in La Liga against the promoted Cadiz (1-1). Suffice to say that the presence of Gerard Piqué will not be a guarantee of serenity for the supporters of FC Barcelona.
