After two months of his recovery process, a medical evaluation was carried out on the player's right knee. It is all going very well. Coinciding with the first team's trip to Japan for the World Club Championship, it has been decided that Afellay will continue his recovery process in the Netherlands under the supervision of Barça's medical team.

Afellay is expected to return to Barcelona on 22nd of December, for a medical check, and then he'll return to the Netherlands until 10th of January. It's then when he'll begin physical training on the pitch in Barcelona.
