Guardiola Includes Thierry Henry In Barcelona Squad For Real Madrid Clash

henryPep has announced his squad that will travel to the Spanish capital.

 Pep Guardiola has summoned a 19-man convoy for Barcelona’s visit to the Santiago Bernabeu to take on Real Madrid in Saturday’s El Clasico showdown.

The only concern for the coach ahead of the trip was forward, Thierry Henry, who had been struggling to shrug off a neck injury he suffered in midweek against Chelsea in the Champions League.

But a late fitness test has confirmed that the Frenchman is healthy enough to be included in the squad, although it is widely expected that he will start from the bench as Pep considers resting at least one of his attacking trio.

Crocked defender, Rafa Marquez is the only big-name exclusion. The Mexican ruptured the external meniscus in his left knee during the Chelsea stalemate last Tuesday and he will be ruled out for eight to ten weeks.

Squad list: Victor Valdes, Jorquera – Dani Alves, Pique, Puyol, Caceres, Abidal, Sylvinho – Xavi, Iniesta, Keita, Toure, Busquets, Hleb, Gudjohnsen – Bojan, Messi, Henry, Eto’o .
