FC Barcelona announced on the club website that defender Marc Muniesa (20) has been enrolled in the Barça B squad, as he faces the final stages of recovery from an injury sustained during preseason. Muniesa suffered a tear to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of his right knee in the match against Hamburger SV. Though the defender resumed training with the first team on January 17th, he is yet to receive the medical green signal. This move to Eusebio’s Barça B gives a chance for Muniesa to return to full match fitness. The left footed defender is set to wear the number 21.
