After a one-day holiday, the FC Barcelona squad returned to La Masia to prepare for the last game of the season in Tarragona on Sunday. Only Ronaldinho and Edmílson were missing.

Warm up and a game

After warming up the players spent more than half an hour going through the usual drills, with Frank Rijkaard joining in 12-06-07_WEB_07.jpgwith all of the exercises.

The Dutchman then divided his players into two teams of nine. The yellow team was made up of Jorquera, Zambrotta, Thuram, Puyol, Sylvinho, Iniesta, Messi, Saviola and Ezquerro, and they faced off against a blue team featuring Valdés, Belletti, Oleguer, Márquez, Gio, Xavi, Deco, Giuly and Eto'o.

Giuly and Ezquerro both scored two goals each in a vigorous session.

Motta and Gudjohnsen

New image for Valdés
Barça’s number one stopper arrived for Tuesday’s workout with a changed look. He has had a fairly heavy duty haircut, and his hair now looks very similar to what it did some time ago.
