Samuel Umtiti offers a message of expectation with respect to his arrival


Samuel Umtiti

FC Barcelona centre back Samuel Umtiti looks like he’s finally overcome his troublesome knee issues.


Umtiti opted against going under the knife and after a slow start appears to be on his way to recovery.

Truth be told, the French safeguard is relied upon to make his full return following the up and coming international break and as such would be available for the match against Atletico Madrid.


A return against Real Betis on Sunday hasn’t been discounted yet either.

The amiable protector ventured out with his partners to Milan yet wasn’t named in Ernesto Valverde’s match day squad.

However his confidence in being back out on the pitch again before long was upheld up by his post on Twitter where he stated: « One bit nearer to returning. »


Valverde has just had two focus backs accessible as of late – Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet – as aside from Umtiti, Thomas Vermaelen is also on the sidelines with an injury.
