After Wednesday's training session, when nine international players returned, this Thursday it was the turn of six more. Sergio, Coutinho, Arthur, Murillo, Jordi Alba and S. Roberto worked out on the Tito Vilanova pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, together with the other players available from the first team. Barça B's Riqui Puig made up the numbers with only Arturo Vidal missing, and he will be back this Friday as planned.
The next training session will be on Friday at 11.00am CET, the last one before the derby against Espanyol (4.15pm CET, Saturday). Afterwards, coach Ernesto Valverde will give a press conference in the press room of the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. In addition, at 2.00pm CET, the Barça coach will be photographed with Joan Francesc Ferrer 'Rubi' at the Camp Nou, as is traditional before FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol play.
