FC Barcelona trained on Tuesday morning for the first time in the 2013/14 season. The venue was field one at the Ciudad Deportiva and 12 players were present (Pinto, Oier, Montoya, Bartra, Mascherano, Adriano, Song, Sergi Roberto, Dos Santos, Messi, Tello and Alexis).
Recovery for three injured players
The injured Puyol, Cuenca and Afellay didn’t take part. Puyol underwent surgery on June 19 to remove a Baker’s cyst from his right knee, Cuenca needed treatment on the meniscus in his right knee and Afellay has injured his right quadriceps. The trio did recovery work instead.
Wearing their new shirts and playing with the new ball, the squad will be training once again this evening at 19.00.
