Vermaelen receives the discharge so that he can play with Belgium

The central Belgian is aware that he will have very few minutes from here to the rest of the season and asked the club to go with his team to try and play.

Thomas Vermaelen received this Saturday after the evening training the medical discharge, although did not even help him to enter the list of summoned for the match against Betis. The reason is that the player asked the club to allow him to travel with his selection to continue probing and even play if he is in full condition. In agreement with the medical services, Vermaelen r received the OK and in this way he will be able to participate with the Belgian team that plays two European Championship qualifying matches: the first at home against Russia on March 21st and the second against Cyprus in Nicosia on the 24th March.

It must be remembered that Vermaelen was injured on February 16 during the game against Valladolid. Subsequent tests confirmed an overload in the twin of his right leg. A month later the player receives the medical discharge, but not to play with the elastic Blaugrana but to be able to help his team in these next two qualifying matches for the Eurocopa.

In any case, Valverde has also given the go-ahead for Vermaelen go with Belgium, aware that once Samuel Umtiti recovered and with the level that Clement Lenglet is exhibiting, the options that the Belgian central can play in Barcelona from here to the end of the season are rather slim.
