The available first team players returned to training at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper this Sunday afternoon to begin preparing for next Saturday's match against Espanyol (9.00pm CET).
It was a session that was also attended by Iñaki Peña and Carles Pérez from Barça B with Ansu Fati doing part of the group work. Moussa Wague didn't train, nor did Sergi Roberto with the coach's permission. Before the session began, a minute's silence was held in tribute to Sergi Roberto's mother, who left us last Saturday.
Leo Messi, Luis Suárez, Neto and Arturo Vidal will re-join their team-mates on January 2. Before that, the team will have a double training session on Monday 30 (11.00am and 6.00pm CET), with another workout planned for Tuesday 31 (10.00am CET), the last of the year.
