Ball games

FC Barcelona’s training session on Wednesday has seen a football present at all times as the players worked on their skills and keeping possession as the build-up to the Mallorca game continued.

The physical work that was evident in recent days was put to one side as the coaches introduced technical control to the programme. The players spent the morning on the pitch in front of La Masia working on different routines with the ball ever present. Passing and control was first up, followed by a period of keeping possession as the players were divided into two groups for a small-sided encounter.

Ronaldinho, who is still suffering slightly from a fever, was not out on the pitch and, instead, remained in the gymnasium, while Samuel Eto’o, Lilian Thuram and Thiago Motta continued their recuperation from injuries.
