Clement Lenglet has given Barcelona a boost by shaking off an ankle injury and being passed fit for the trip to Ferencvaros in the Champions League.

The Frenchman was a doubt for the game after being forced off with the problem against Osasuna at the weekend but will now make the trip to Hungary.

It’s not yet clear if Lenglet will start the game or if he will be kept in reserve given Barcelona are also still without Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Ronald Araujo.

Ronald Koeman spoke briefly about his injured defenders in his pre-match press conference and admitted Araujo is close to a comeback but isn’t quite 100% after a hamstring problem.

The Dutch coach also revealed that Samuel Umtiti is set to play a friendly game with Barcelona B tomorrow and is also close to returning to full fitness after five months out.
