Eto'o, Ronaldinho and Motta out of Wednesdays game
Motta has a thigh strain and will miss the Sevilla game at the weekend too. Eto'o has a sore ankle (that's what the Barca website says) and Ronaldinho is being rested. Expect Ezquerro to come in for 'dinho, Larsson for Sammy and Gabri for Motta. The full squad for the Udine game is here.
Demetrio Albertini has announced his retirement. Demetrio was a fabulous player at Milan (winning five Scudetti and one European Cup) and while he only came to Barca for 6 months at the very end of his career he played well anytime he was asked to step up. In a move that will no doubt endear him further to FCB cules, his website, will soon be available in Catalan. Bravo Demetrio!
