This Wednesday afternoon Alex Song completed his first training session as an Azulgrana. The new FC Barcelona player trained at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup. The Cameroonian, who underwent his physical, signed his contract, was presented with the team and held a press conference on Monday and Tuesday, trotted out onto the Field 1 with the rest of his team-mates.

‘Rondos’

Song, who was accompanied by Cesc Fàbregas, got a first hand experience of what it’s like to feature in a Barça training session. The ‘rondo’ was among one of the main drills in today’s session, and the player got taste of what it means to participate in a rondo with the likes of Xavi, Iniesta, Messi and Cesc.
