Kounde wanted to play vs Rayo’: Barca VP confirms Jules wasn’t left out for fitness reasons

Jules Kounde was the only new contract that Barcelona did not register ahead of the match against Rayo Vallecano. Consequently, he had to spend the games in the stands.

It was initially reported that the Frenchman was left out for fitness reasons. However, club vice president Rafael Yuste seems to have indicated that there were other reasons for it.

“Kounde wanted to play today, but we explained the situation and told him that we’ll do everything possible for him to play next weekend,” Yuste said after the game.

Jules was the last signing Barca made this season, and this might be the reason why he was the one to be left out. Otherwise, it may be because Xavi already has enough options at centre-back.
