Nigerian U23 star, Usman Muhammed, has been placed on standby in the 35 Report list training by Barcelona, as his name was found to be missing from the list of 35 players summoned by the B team to resume for pre -season training.

Usman who was ever present for the U23s of Nigeria at the Rio 2016 Olympics where they won bronze, is according to Catalan based Newspaper, Sports, among the incoming players ‎not summoned by the coach.

Sport also pointed out that the B team of Barcelona, where Usman had trials and did well last season, are presently battling with a high number of players which will require trimming down before the start of next season which leaves the two men now in charge of the academy, José Mari Bakero and Guillermo Amor, with a lot of work ahead of them as they attempt to decide what to do with such an excess of players.
