Barça went back to training on Wednesday, but those that were playing with the Catalan national team last night did so separately from the others. On Thursday they were all back together at the Ciutat Esportiva for the first time in 2013. Tito Vilanova was able to take charge of the proceedings, and when it was over, all of Cesc , Adriano and Song were declared fully fit.
Valdés and Cuenca with group
All three were able to train normally with their team mates, as were Víctor Valdés, who missed the game between Catalonia and Nigeria with plantar fasciitis, Isaac Cuenca, who is still recovering from his own injury, and reserve team goalkeeper Oier Olazábal. The B team’s Tello and Bartra, who were also at Cornellà-El Prat, joined in with the post-match recovery session.
Éric Abidal, meanwhile, worked in isolation with an eye to eventually being able to train normally with the rest of the team. There will be another training session this afternoon at Sant Joan Despí as FCB continue getting ready for the big derby match with Espanyol.
