Enrique denies Rakitic absence related to City rumours
FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique insists that Ivan Rakitic's omission from the squad for the Monday morning's clash against Villareal was not related to speculation over the midfielder's future.

As outlined in the organisation's anti-doping handbook, the regulation means all clubs must ensure details relating to the times, dates and venues of training sessions are "in the manner directed by the FA".

Regulation 14(d) states: "It shall also be a breach of this regulation 14 by the club if the information contained in such reports is either initially inaccurate or has not been updated by the club as necessary to ensure it remains accurate."
