Squad announced for Norway trip
Pep Guardiola has named the 22 players who will make the trip to Norway on Thursday for the first friendly of the pre-season against Valerenga. The list includes 8 from the senior squad and 14 from the reserves.
The first squad of the summer consists of Pinto, Adriano, Bojan, Ibrahimovic, Keita, Maxwell,
Milito and Victor Sanchez from the first team squad and Miño, Armando, Benja, Dalmau, Edu Oriol,
Ilie, Jonathan dos Santos, Jonathan Soriano, Martí Riverola, Muniesa, Nolito, Sergi Gomez, Sergi
Roberto and Tello from the reserves.
Abidal, who only resumed training on Monday, together with Hleb, Oier, Cuenca and
Masip, have been cut from the squad. Meanwhile, Jeffren – who has a muscle niggle –
will also remain in Barcelona as a precaution. Fontàs and Vazquez will continue their recovery
programmes at the Club’s training grounds.
A flying visit
The team will fly out to Oslo at 9 am on Thursday. The match kicks off at 7 pm and the Barça
party will return immediately afterwards.
