Barcelona register Riqui Puig with B team

Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig will stay registered with the B team - for now.

Sport says when he's involved with the first team he will have a number higher than 25, which is the cut off point between the first team and the B team.

However, Puig will remain part of Ronald Koeman's squad and will be involved with the seniors 100 percent of the time. Save any last-minute changes, he will wear the same shirt number as last season: 28.

Puig began his Barça career in 2013 after signing from Jabac de Terrassa and made his Barça B debut in 2017-18 against Gimnàstic de Tarragona. His first team debut arrived on Dec. 5, 2018, in a Copa del Rey win against Cultural.
