Official: Sergi Samper and Thomas Vermaelen have received the medical green light. Sergi Samper received the medical green light after being a couple of months off since he was injured in the first leg of the 1/16 final against the Cultural on October 31. He suffered a break in the soleus of his right leg, like Vermaelen, but more serious.
On the other hand, Thomas Vermaelen received the OK from the doctors after the recovery of his right leg injury suffered on December 16 in LaLiga against Levante (0-5). He has been a month without playing.
Excellent news, Sergi Samper is finally back, a player who has never had the best luck, but the effort and work is something that makes this player special. I hope Valverde trusts that he can fulfill his role, this is a great player and plays in a position where few can play, but Samper is different, he knows how to work in that position and be a great engine in the team.
We also have Vermaelen back, who could have his last months in our club. The Belgian defender is another who has not had a good friendship with his health, let's hope and enjoy his final stage in Barcelona. However, I don't think he will have so many minutes since we signed Murillo,so, Vermaelen won't have many minutes, only for rotation.
