Spanish giants pull out of Saudi Arabian friendly

The Blaugrana have come up short in the middle east, and have had to postpone the friendly match in order to recover some of their injured squad.

The friendly held a great deal of significance to local fans and, as such, instead of cancelling, Barcelona have rescheduled, though a date has not yet been announced.

The clubs have agreed that the re-arranged match will be Barcelona's first overseas friendly of the new season, starting in September, when they will be led by new coach Josep Guardiola.
