Riqui Puig dropped to Barcelona B team

Riqui Puig has been dropped to the B team for Barcelona preseason training.

The talented midfielder made his first team breakthrough last season and is rated highly across Europe.

However, AS says a fully fit Puig was dumped to Javier Garcia Pimienta's B team for training this week.

It's a decision that has raised eyebrows inside Spanish football, with claims Puig may've been cut for disciplinary issues.

Another missing from senior training has been Oriol Busquets.
