Medical: Iniesta could return against Chivas

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that Barcelona player Andrés Iniesta (25) could return to action on Saturday when Barcelona will play the last game of the US tour in San Francisco against Chivas.

Apart from his thigh injury, Iniesta has also lost three kilograms because of a stomach virus and is now still one kilogram away from his normal weight. Despite Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola yesterday telling journalists that Iniesta will have fully recovered in a couple of weeks, the paper reports it's possible he could already play some minutes during the Chivas game in the weekend.

On his official website, Iniesta meanwhile says: "For the time being I must continue with my recovery and I expect being able to start playing as soon as possible. I want to return to full action as I'm curious to find out how my leg is doing after these months of work."

Iniesta torn a quadriceps muscle on the front of his right thigh during the league game against Villarreal on Sunday 10 May and although he played the Champions League final against Manchester United on Wednesday 27 May, he has never fully recovered from that injury. On Friday 5 June, the medical staff of the Spanish football federation confirmed that the player has torn a muscle in his thigh and he was then expected to be out for the next six to eight weeks.
