Barcelona says Henry not ruled out against Chelsea

Barcelona says Henry not ruled out against Chelsea

Barcelona officials will decide later Monday whether striker Thierry Henry is fit to travel with the team for the Champions League semifinal second leg against Chelsea this week.
"Reports that Henry has been ruled out are not true," Barcelona spokesman Jose Miguel Perry said on Monday. "Team doctors and the coach will look at his situation and decide this afternoon whether he will be in the list or not."
He said the squad list for Wednesday's match in west London would be released after evening training.
Henry took a knock to the knee in Saturday's Spanish league match against Real Madrid in which he scored two goals to help Barcelona win 6-2 and tighten its grip at the top of the table.
The France forward played on, but was replaced towards the end of the game.
Barcelona faces Chelsea without injured defender Rafael Marquez and suspended captain Carles Puyol. The two sides drew 0-0 in the first leg last week at the Nou Camp.
