Nelson Semedo is back in training after suffering a head injury in Barcelona’s 2-2 draw with Eibar on Sunday. Semedo was released from the hospital on Monday after being kept there for observation overnight.

When the injury took place, Barcelona released a statement:

“Semedo has undergone the necessary tests required for the head injury he received against Eibar on Sunday, and has been discharged from hospital.

”The player returns to Barcelona to continue with the established protocol regarding this kind of injury and an evaluation will be made of when he can return to training.”

Semedo will now be hopeful he can return in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday, but it remains unclear how effective he can be after suffering a head injury. Of all injuries one of the most difficult to come back from and understand the significance of are head injuries.
