Spain International and Barcelona defender, Gerard Pique announced via his official twitter page that he is back from the injury he sustained during the Uefa champions league home victory against Manchester City.

The initial diagnosis was that Gerard Pique has sprained the external lateral ligament in the right ankle, and the estimated time he will be out will be three weeks.

Barca have suffered somewhat defensively without the tall towering figure of Pique in their defense. His calmness, soundness of mind, organization and ability to read and break plays as well as start attacks from the back has been missed dearly by Barcelona.

This news therefore comes as a massive boost as fans can breathe a bit easier now because one of their leaders and club hero is now expected to get the green light from the medical team and be available for selection after the International break.
