The routine of double training sessions now applies to Messi, Busquets, Piqué and Jordi Alba. Both in the morning and afternoon on Wednesday, all four worked out on the Tito Vilanova pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. However, the second session of the day was undertaken without the six Barça B players (Ruiz de Galarreta, Morer, Mujica, Mate, Guillem and McGuane) that had accompanied them in the morning. Sergi Samper only participated in the latter session.
In order to get in shape ahead of the return of their team-mates from the US tour, there’ll be another session on Thursday, August 2. Holidays are already a distant memory.
