WATCH: Barcelona fullback Junior Firpo told of axe while on Levante pitch

Cameras have caught Barcelona fullback Junior Firpo being informed he was out of the squad for their defeat at Levante on Saturday.

Firpo travelled with the squad to the Ciutat de València and was hoping to at least make the bench.

But while on the pitch chatting with teammate Ansu Fati, Firpo was approached by Barca assistant coach Jon Aspiazu and told he would not be playing, with Nelson Semedo taking his place.

The cameras caught his reaction, including him discussing his situation with Levante's Sergio Leon, a former Real Betis teammate.
