Defensive reinforcements are on the way for FC Barcelona’s beleaguered backline as influential central defenders Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique inch their way back towards the playing field. Sport is reporting on Thursday that Puyol has already started running and will soon resume limited training. ElMundoDeportivo also confirmed on the same day that Pique has nearly recovered from his leg injury. And although the player will not be fit for the weekend clash with Deportivo, he will likely be available for next week’s match with Celtic. Not a moment too soon, eh?
