Riqui Puig posted a positive update regarding his fitness on Sunday after being stretchered off in stoppage time for Barcelona B over the weekend.
The midfielder was hacked down at the end of Barca B’s 1-1 draw with Llagostera on Saturday, and there were fears he may have suffered a serious injury.
Barca B played down fears after the match with an update suggesting the injury was not too serious, and Puig has now offered further details on his condition.
Muchas gracias por todas las muestras de cariño y ánimo recibidas.— Riqui Puig (@RiquiPuig) October 20, 2019
Todo bien y con muchas ganas de volver mañana a los entrenamientos ♂

He wrote: “Thank you very much for all the messages of love and encouragement received. All good and eager to return tomorrow to training. Keep working.”
It certainly sounds like Puig has escaped injury this time around, although he was also targeted the week previously and was on the end of some heavy challenges.
All of which prompts the question - is Barca B still the best place for Puig? Loan moves have been rumored but recent reports have suggested neither the player nor the club are particularly keen.
