The five fist team footballers that were not named to their respective national sides voluntarily trained this Wednesday with Eusebio Sacristán’s Barça B team. Pinto, Piqué, Puyol - who has yet to be cleared to play by the Club’s Medical Services -, Xavi and Jonathan dos Santos joined their Barça B counterparts for this morning’s session.
Song and Adriano, on the other hand, trained in the gym, whilst Thiago trained apart from the group. It’s worth noting that Barça’s number 11 is recovering from an injury to his medial collateral ligament.
Training session scheduled for Thursday afternoon
The first team, including a handful of internationals, will return to work on Thursday afternoon at 18.00 at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. The session will serve to prepare the team for Saturday’s Liga match against Zaragoza (20.00).
