Messi and Ansu Fati exercise in isolation as time counts down towards the Liga restart
Quique Setién and his team were back out on the training ground this Friday after taking the previous day off.
Barça captain Leo Messi has a minor right quadriceps injury and trained in isolation, doing specific exercises to avoid unnecessary risks with just eight days remaining before Barça finally get back to playing matches. He should be able to rejoin his team-mates in a few days’ time.
All of the available players were at the Ciutat Esportiva, where they were joined by Jorge Cuenca and Kike Saverio as well as the other B team players who have been working out with the first team over the last few days: Iñaki Peña, R. Araujo, Chumi, Monchu, Riqui Puig, Collado and AnsuFati. The latter, like Messi, worked out individually this morning.
For tomorrow’s Saturday session the players will train again, but unusually, this session is going to be on the pitch in the Camp Nou as Setién works to get his players ready for the return to football, but with games being played behind closed doors.
