BARCELONA (SPAIN) – Barcelona are furious with Junior Firpo. The young footballer born in 1996, who was supposed to take the place of the injured Jordi Alba, hurt himself in a way that sent the Blaugrana club into a rage. Junior Firpo violated the rules of the Catalan club and got injured during a go kart race. Now he will be fined and could also be put out of the team.
If you are a Barcelona footballer, you cannot go karting in your spare time. Barcelona has banned this activity from its players because in the past both Luis Enrique, current Spain manager, and Semedo, a player who is still in the Catalan squad, have hurt themselves in this way.
Now Barcelona are in trouble. The team is in crisis after the heavy knockout in Clasico against Real Madrid and now risks not having Junior Firpo for the match valid for the return of the Champions League round of 16 against Napoli.
Barcelona that must already deal with the disqualifications remedied by Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal (sent off in the final of the first leg). Gattuso could take advantage of these absences to land in the Champions League quarter-finals.
