Barcelona defender Carles Puyol insists he will be fit in time for the start of the season.
The 33-year-old captain’s run-in to the 2010-11 campaign was intermittent as injury restricted his participation. The player eventually underwent knee surgery on June 1, before a rapid recovery programme with fitness Coach Juanjo Brau saw him return to pre-season training by July 1.
Puyol told Marca
Puyol is currently training with his teammates in the US, with the team scheduled to travel from Washington to Miami for the next leg of their pre-season tour.
