Tito Vilanova was back on the training pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva this morning for the final session of the week, once again marked by the absence of 17 international players. The boss was in Nyon for the UEFA Coaches Forum on Wednesday and Thursday.

Vilanova worked with the five players available from the first team squad -Puyol, Thiago, Pinto, Fontàs and Dos Santos – and rather than train together with the B team squad, who are travelling for their game in Guadalajara, B team keeper Miguel Bañuz, midfielder Toni Sanabria and striker Maxi Rolón from the Youth team joined the session.

The squad have been given a break until their next training session on Tuesday afternoon.
