FC Barcelona on Tuesday completed their traditional open door training session to kick off the New Year. In front of an excited public, Luis Enrique’s men trained at the Miniestadi ahead of the Copa del Rey last 16 first leg match against Athletic Club.
The session saw the return of Luis Suárez, Leo Messi, Neymar Jr and Javier Mascherano, who were given permission to return a little later than the rest of the group from South America.
It was a workout that was fun, festive but also serious with the cup match looming this Thursday. The team will hold one more session on Wednesday before travelling to Bilbao on Thursday morning.
