Vermaelen and Pedro, fitness training apart from the group

The Belgian worked for the first time on the pitch, whilst the Canary Islander is still recovering from gastroenteritis 25 players took part in the training session at the Ciudad Deportiva, with the absence of Neymar

This Friday, Thomas Vermaelen begun to work on the pitch, though separately from the main group. It’s the first time the Belgian has been able to do this since sustaining a hamstring injury. Pedro was also present, but is still not fully recovered from gastroenteritis and is thus doubtful for the game on Sunday at home to Elche (9 PM CET).

Ter Stegen also carried on with his recovery work, while the main group included four players from Barça B, namely Munir, Sandro, Samper and Adama. Brazilian Adriano Correia joined them for part of the session, but Neymar Jr was missing with a sprained left ankle.

The next first team training session will be on Saturday at 10.30 AM CET at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper, after which manager Luis Enrique will be giving a press conference.
