Frank Rijkaard drops by Barça's workout!

The former manager was on hand at the team's training center and watch the session live

Former FC Barcelona manager Frank Rijkaard visited the team during their training session Sunday, a day after he attended Barça’s 2–2 draw versus Celta at Camp Nou.

Rijkaard led FC Barcelona for five seasons (2003-2008), and won the 2006/06 UEFA Champions League title, as well as the 2004/05 and 2005/06 La Liga championships, and the 2005/06 and 2006/07 Spanish Super Cups. Rijkaard coached current players Andrés Iniesta and Leo Messi, in addition to a panoply of former stars like Ronaldinho, Samuel Eto’o, Carles Puyol, Xavi, Luis Enrique and Víctor Valdés.

“I’m very happy to have seen the [Celta] game,” Rijkaard said. “My son’s dream was to see Barça play in person.”

“Messi is God,” Rijkaard continued. “He deserves all the praise he gets, and the same with Iniesta. I congratulated them for everything they’ve done. It fills me with pride and I always follow them from afar. I have wonderful memories of Barça. It was fantastic.”
