He had permission to rest until Saturday
Marc Bartra wants to feel important and decided to join concentration with the Spanish national team earlier than expected. Vicente Del Bosque had granted more days off for players who were in Copa del Rey final last Sunday and had permission to rest until next Saturday 28 May.
However, the center-back decided to travel today with the national team in Austria to start preparing EURO 2016 in the quiet village of Schruns. On Sunday 29 at 6 pm CEST, the Spanish team will play a friendly against Bosnia.
The player wants to be able to demonstrate his value and confirm his presence at the tournament. For the moment, he is on the provisional list of 25 players; Del Bosque must dismiss two players before the start of the competition. If Bartra takes part in the EURO 2016, the Catalan will have a great showcase to find a new team ahead of next season.
Bartra posted a picture on the plane before leaving to Austria, next to Pedro, a former Barça player who also left Camp Nou due to lack of minutes.
