Barcelona skipper Carles Puyol admitted that he could be out of the Copa Del Rey final against Real Madrid after sustaining a hamstring injury in Saturday's El Classico. Prior to the tie, Puyol had been out for three months with a knee injury he sustained in January.
Puyol told the club's official website, I'll definitely be there. Playing or not, I don't know.
He went on to deny suggestions that he rushed his return before being fully fit. We made the decision and it was the right one, he said. I felt very good on Saturday, with loads of enthusiasm and excitement.
It's been three hard months that were very tough for me. It was the perfect place to make my comeback. In the first half I felt really good until I started having some problems.
