WATCH: Nélson Semedo scores incredible goal in Barcelona training ...

Barcelona player, Nélson Semedo, was left out of training on Thursday 11th June for breaking the La Liga health protocol by going to a birthday. It was the club themselves, in a tweet, which informed their defender didn’t train with the rest of the players.

Semedo was left out of Barcelona’s latest training session. The defender was the subject of a huge controversy by breaking the La Liga health protocol to go to a birthday and this has been the direct consequence. He couldn’t join his teammates as a preventative measure.

More details about the celebration he attended have come to the fore. ‘Marca’ note that there were at least 20 people, which exceeded not only the rules of the football organization but also the government’s orders. You have to remember that Barcelona is still in phase 2 of the Spanish de-escalation plan.

It was the club themselves, in a tweet from their official account, which informed that their player wasn’t training on the pitch. “Training session with available first-team players. N. Semedo did not train as per protocol established by La Liga“.

It can also be extracted from this post that it was La Liga that ordered the footballer not to be near his teammates. At the moment, Barca has not taken disciplinary measures, but they could do in the next few days. Semedo will have to wait.
