This morning the players did not take part in their usual training session at the Ciutat Esportiva. Instead, coach Luis Enrique decided to take the players off for a team building exercise away from the training ground. The entire first team made their way to a karting circuit for an activity that was planned within the training schedule and served to help the team to bond. The Barça coach is not a newcomer to organising such excursions as he did so when he was in charge at Barça B, AS Roma and Celta de Vigo.
The team will return to training on Saturday at 11AM CET at the Ciutat Esportiva, following which Luis Enrique will appear before the press. It will be their final training session before the trip to Mestalla to take on Valencia on Sunday.
