Seydou Keita back to Barcelona



Mali international Seydou Keita has been granted permission by his new club Dalian Aerbin F.C. to train at his former club Barcelona ahead of January’s Africa Cup of Nations.

The 32-year-old midfielder, who left Camp Nou in July, has completed his first season in the Chinese Premier League which is currently in offseason and will resume in March 2013.

Keita ended the season with an injury but has recovered and will begin training with the Blaugrana this week, according to the Mali football federation.

Mali won bronze in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations played in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea and will face Ghana, Niger and DR Congo in Group B in South Africa next year.

Keita, first signing of the Guardiola era, played a total of 188 official matches with Barcelona between 2008 and 2012.
