The mass exodus of international players continues apace at Can Barça with Seydou Keita off to play with Mali, making it 14 players not training with the remnants of the squad on Thursday.

Bare bones

Pitch number 2 saw the bare bones of the squad in training this morning and today they were not joined by the Barça B squad, who were preparing for Sunday's game against Cartagena – with just Masip, Deulofeu, Femenía and Lobato attending.

With Pep Guardiola attending the Elite Coaches' Forum in Nyon, Tito Vilanova took the session and worked with Pinto, Fontàs and the injured Puyol, Maxwell and Afellay. Adriano and Muniesa both continued with their recovery programmes, whilst Piqué worked in the gym.

Last training of the week on Friday

The remnants of the squad will be back in training on Friday at 9.30, with the first quarter of an hour open to the public. This will be the final training of the week, as the players have been given a few days off.
