Barcelona confident Henry and Iniesta will be fit
Wednesday 20 May 2009
Barcelona are confident that both striker Thierry Henry and midfielder Andres Iniesta will be fit for next week's Champions League final against Manchester United, defender Gerard Pique said.
"The team is confident they will get there," Pique said in remarks at an awards ceremony published on Barca's website (www.fcbarcelona.cat). "They are working day and night to recover and I am sure they will get there," he added.
France captain Henry injured a knee in a 6-2 win at Real Madrid on May 2 and Spain's Iniesta strained a thigh muscle in a 3-3 draw to Villarreal on May 10.
