Andres Iniesta has moved to the second phase of his recovery from ligament damage after getting his knee brace removed.
An initial-half challenge from Enzo Perez hurt Iniesta within the victory over Valencia on March. 22, ruling him from action for between 6 to 8 days.
After getting the orthopaedic splint taken off his knee on Thursday, there’s still an opportunity he’ll satisfy the six-week target, which may enable him to go back to action at the outset of December.
“Next phase! You’ve solved the problem a great deal but I’d rather not help you any longer,” the Barca captain tweeted in mention of elimination of the brace.

Harm to the lateral collateral ligament in the right knee has seen Iniesta miss Barca’s make an impression on Granada as well as their Champions League defeat to Manchester City.
The Clasico against Real Madrid at Camp Nou on 12 ,. 3 continues to be pointed out within the Catalan press as a potential comeback game for that 32-year-old, although that seems an positive target.
Iniesta may also miss Spain’s approaching World Cup qualifier against Macedonia and friendly against England, and so will Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba.
Both defenders are major doubts for Barca’s game at Sevilla a few days ago but they are expected so that you can go back to learning the approaching days. However, La Roja boss Julen Lopetegui has made the decision to not name them in the squad.
