Barça: Xavi optimistic for Koundé’s registration on Sunday against Valladolid

Jules Koundé, who has still not been able to play a single minute in an official match with FC Barcelona, « can play » Sunday against Valladolid at Camp Nou (7:30 p.m.) for the 3rd day of La Liga, said Saturday his coach, Xavi.

“We are convinced that Jules (Koundé) will be able to play tomorrow (Sunday). He will be registered”said the Catalan technician at a press conference on Saturday at Camp Nou.

Arrived at the end of July, the French central defender (23 years old, 11 selections), could not be registered for the first two days of La Liga due to Barça’s economic concerns: the Catalan club exceeds the salary ceiling set by LaLiga, the body that manages Spanish professional football, if it registers all its summer recruits.

“We will never distort the competition. Barca have never done it and never will. It becomes very complicated to register players. We’re optimistic for Sunday, it’s just a numbers issue, getting the numbers into financial fair play. »swept Xavi.
