Rafinha gets all-clear

Barcelona midfielder Rafinha has had the all-clear to return to action, six months after he suffered a knee injury against Roma.

Mundo Deportivo reports Rafinha’s return, having been hurt against the Italians in a challenge with Radja Nainggolan.

Rafinha had to undergo surgery as a result but trained with his teammates on Thursday and is now available to Luis Enrique, it’s said, after the club’s medical department gave the go-ahead.

Barca President Josep Maria Bartomeu was among the well-wishers on Twitter who congratulated Rafinha on his recovery, posting a picture and message of support.
