Samuel Umtiti’s recovery from injury took another step forward on Tuesday when he took part in a section of the training session with the rest of the squad. The French defender explained to Barça TV following the session his “good feeling” after weeks of recovery work was followed by his first taste of training with the ball again and with his team-mates.

The centre back injured a hamstring on 2 December in the game against Celta Vigo in the league at Camp Nou. Umtiti also gave his opinion on new arrival Phillipe Coutinho: “He is a quality player and he will help us win as many trophies as possible this season.”
