Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard has welcomed the return to fitness of striker Eidur Gudjohnsen.

The Icelandic international has been sidelined with a knee problem, but he could make his first appearance of the new season against Osasuna this weekend after being given the all-clear by the Barcelona medical team.

With Samuel Eto´o out for two months through injury, the availability of Gudjohnsen is a boost for Rijkaard as the Catalan giants prepare to begin their Champions League campaign.
