“I’m currently out injured with a shoulder injury during training but my doctors said I will be back on my feet again in two TO three weeks. I’ve been awaiting my work permit application result for weeks but I learnt I should get it latest in two weeksfrom now,” assured Bassey.

On the news that he was no more a Barcelona player and that the deal was off, the former Enyimba 19-year-old speed demon, posited that it was a shame such news was been peddled.

“I wonder where the news came from. If i wasn’t still a Barca player, I wonder what I will still be doing at their hospital and their doctors and nurses working on me. If the deal was off as they have said, then so many things remain unclear. What I can tell you is that for the moment, I’m concentrating on my recovery and hope that my work permit will be out in time for me to play some part in the last days of the season for the team,” concluded Bassey.

Bassey joined FC Barcelona B side on a six-month initial loan deal from former Nigeria Professional Football League side, Enyimba FC.
