Iniesta returns to training ahead of Clasico
Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta might be available to play against Real Madrid in the Clasico on Saturday at the Nou Camp, coach Luis Enrique said on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old midfielder damaged knee ligaments last month and returned to training on Friday.
"Andres is waiting to be given the all clear by the doctors but this is just a formality. He is fit and he has been training with us," Luis Enrique told a news conference, reports Reuters.
"He is available for selection."
The Spain international missed Sunday's 1-1 draw at Real Sociedad, a result that left Barca six points adrift of La Liga leaders Real Madrid, who are unbeaten in 31 games in all competitions.
Sunday's result in San Sebastian was Barca's second successive draw in La Liga. - IH
