Yamal returns to training session after 4-match ban
Xavi Hernandez’s side is trying to rebound from their humiliating setback to Real Madrid on Wednesday, as they aim to win their first league title in four years.
Lamine Yamal made his first appearance at Saturday’s training session after four match ban. Yamal was dismissed due to “an act of indiscipline” when the club handed him a four-match suspension for an incident that occurred while he was on international duty with Spain’s under-17 team. As a result, Xavi refused to summon him to first-team training.
According to Diario AS, the 15-year-old is one of the top players in the La Masia academy. He was sent home from the under-17s’ training camp in the Algarve owing to “an act of indiscipline”. The dispute involves Yamal and two other players (one from Atletico Madrid and one from Real Madrid). However it is unclear what exactly happened. The RFEF, on the other hand, has chosen to dismiss Yamal.
According to MD, he has already returned for the first time since his ban. His fellow youngsters Aleix Garrido and Angel Alarcon have joined the first team ahead of Sunday evening’s match. Barcelona will be hoping that Yamal continues to grow over the following three years, with the goal of eventually being a regular first-team member.
