On Wednesday morning there was yet another example of the camaraderie amongst Barça's first team players. Captain Carles Puyol, Gerard Piqué, Cesc Fabregas, and Andreu Fontàs went to the hospital to visit David Villa, and didn't do so with their hands empty. The players took with them the trophy they came home with, as winners of the recent World Club Championship, held in Japan. It was just one more detail to help Villa, who was injured in the semifinal match against Al-Sadd, feel part of the triumph. Thus, Villa had got to hold the only trophy that was left for him to win.

We should recall that in the last couple of days a lot of David Villa's teammates, and coaching staff, have been to the hospital to encourage him and wish him a speedy recovery.
