Junior Firpo has denied that he hurt his left hand while go-karting. The Barcelona left-back said there were no erosions or abrasions on his hand and that the injury happened at training.

‘El Club de la mitjanit’ on Catalunya Ràdio reported that the summer signing injured his hand after the Getafe game in a go-karting accident and led to him wearing a bandage on the injured limb.

The players are not allowed to partake in activities that could lead to injury said the report. Firpo's tweet contesting the report says:

"I want to explain that the slight injury that I had on my left hand happened to me at training during the session before the Eibar game at the Ciudad Deportivo in Barcelona. Any other version does not fit into reality."

"There are no erosion or abrasion, simply a bad fall at training like many other times. I believe that there are a lot of thing to speak about in the world of sport without inventing things."
