Barça B players celebrated their traditional Christmas meal this evening at the Royal Tennis Club in Barcelona. The players, coaching staff, directors Jordi Mestre and Silvio Elías, football director Andoni Zubizarreta, and the directors of Barça B’s Athletic Commission gathered together to celebrate the end of the year before next week's break in competitive play.
Jordi Mestre declared: “I hope we can all keep on enjoying this good moment the team is going through.” He encouraged the players to “take advantage of this moment they’re experiencing [with the team].”
2012 was a good year for Barça B
This evening’s Christmas meal comes days before the match against Girona, who sit in second place in the Liga Adelante table. Barça B are not intimidated by Girona, seeing that the Blaugrana occupy the sixth position in the table and hold a playoff spot for Primera Divison promotion.
The manager, Eusebio Sacristán, is pleased with the team’s progress and he thanked the directors for their support. “We’ve managed to be a family. The new players have adapted to the team well. Now we have the responsibility to keep on working hard,” he said.
