Training… and baseball!

David Saura (enviat especial)

Barca’s final training session in Seattle ended on a light note with an improvised baseball game at the University of Washington facilities.

After their comfortable win over Seattle Sounders, the squad had a typically relaxed post match session, with Marquez the only player to miss out, whilst Iniesta worked on his own in the gym to build up his strength. Ibrahimovic was again the focus of the fans’ attention as he practiced his shooting.

Baseball skills on show

Bojan was advised by the rest of the squad to keep his day job - baseball doesn’t seem to be his strongest sport!

Following the training session, the squad returned to their hotel for lunch and to pack their bags for the next step on the trip, San Francisco, where they were due to arrive in the evening. On Friday the squad will train in the morning and the afternoon.
