Henry in doubt for Champions League clash with Man Utd

Barcelona forward Thierry Henry is doubtful for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final at home to Manchester United on Wednesday as he is suffering from a fever.

The France international, who sat as an unused substitute during the club's 0-0 draw with Espanyol over the weekend, was absent from Monday's closed-door training session due to the illness, Barcelona said in a statement.

Also missing was defender Oleguer Presas who has been sidelined for over a month with a fracture in his left hand but doctors gave him the green light for the match against Manchester United, the statement added.

Barcelona captain Carles Puyol will be absent from the match but in his case it is due to suspension. He is serving a one-match ban after being booked in both legs of the quarter-final with German side Schalke 04.

The winners of the semi-final tie will face either Chelsea or Liverpool in the final in Moscow on May 21.

I don’t think there’ll be much trouble over this. Henry wasn’t playing anyway. We’ve got Messi, Inisesta and probably Marquez back, so the team won’t notice.

Anyway I hope we get him back for the away match, as we could use his speed at counter attack.
