Jordi Alba back in Barcelona training ahead of El Clasico

Jordi Alba returned to full-scale training with Barcelona yesterday.

The fullback will be available for Saturday's El Clasico against Real Madrid.

The defender was hurt on October 5, suffering a muscular leg injury. He had to leave the pitch against Sevilla, with Sergino Dest coming in to replace him.

The US defender played at left-back and featured there since, against Getafe and Ferencvaros.

However Ronald Koeman could put Alba back there, fitness depending, and play Dest in his preferred right back spot, or keep Sergi Roberto in for now.
