Ilaix Moriba back with Barcelona B after debut in Copa win

Ilaix Moriba has dropped back down to Barcelona B today.

Sport says after making his first-team debut in the Copa del Rey against Cornella on Thursday, Ilaix made it clear that he was still a Barça B player and that his goal was to help them get promoted to the second division.

Therefore, on Saturday, he was back training with Javier Garcia Pimienta's side and on Sunday will be in the XI for the important league game against UE Olot.

Barça B need Ilaix after losing to league leaders Nastic de Tarragona last week and the 18-year-old midfielder accepts the situation naturally.

In fact, he's still technically registered to the U19 team, although in the coming days that's expected to change with the paperwork to promote him to the B team full time being completed.
