Barça: Alcácer "knows what to expect" on Mestalla return
The former Valencia captain and youth team product will make his return to the club on Sunday following his acrimonious move to Camp Nou.
Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernández told local radio station CV Ràdio that former Valencia captain and youth team product Paco Alcácer “knows what to expect in Mestalla” as the forward makes his first return to his old club on Sunday.
The Mestalla faithful were far from pleased when Alcácer agitated for a move to Barcelona during the summer and the Spain international can expect a frosty reception when Barcelona visit Valencia.
"We'll have to boo him during the warm-up"
Cesare Prandelli, recently installed as manager at Mestalla, paid a visit to a supporters’ club on Thursday and when the subject of Alcácer’s return came up most of the fans present said he would be greeted with jeers. Several joked that they would have to boo their former idol during the warm-up, “because he’ll watch the game from the bench.”
