FC Barcelona’s new star signing passed his medical this morning and is now at the disposition of his new manager

At 9.30, Alex Song stopped by the Club’s offices to pose for the traditional photo with the FC Barcelona crest. Afterward, the Cameroon international underwent his medical at Hospital Barcelona and the Medical Center of the Ciutat Esportiva.

“At the manager’s disposal”

Doctor Ricard Pruna talked about the medical tests the player underwent this morning: “His body fat percentage is extremely low and he has good muscle quality. I don’t think he’s had muscle injuries since he was 17, and that’s really good news. He passed all the tests and he’s at the manager’s disposition.”
