Barca heaves sigh of relief as Rakitic returns to training

BARCELONA, Spain: Barcelona received a huge boost ahead of Copa del Ray final against Sevilla after midfielder Ivan Rakitic returned to training on Thursday.

Rakitic has been given medical clearance to return to training following a metacarpal operation.

“One of the available first team players was Ivan Rakitic, who has been given medical clearance to return to training following a metacarpal operation,” the club said in a statement.

He trained with the first team after having recovered from a broken finger.

Rakitic has not played since sustaining the injury during Barcelona’s shock 0-3 defeat to Roma in the Champions League last week.
