Cup preparations begin
Edgar Fornós / Vanessa Forns
Following the hard won win over Getafe, the squad were back in training this morning behind closed doors at the Ciutat Esportiva as they prepared for Wednesday’s Cup game against Ceuta.
As usual on a day after a game, the session was quite gentle, with the stress on recovering from
the strains of the Getafe match.
Xavi in the gym
Of the 18-man squad, only Xavi didn’t come out onto the training pitch,
preferring to stay in the gym, whilst Jeffren continued his recovery from his back injury and
worked apart from the rest of the group with his own trainer.
Six B team players
Six youngsters from the B team- keeper Rubén Miño, Jonathan dos Santos, Thiago
Alcántara, Marc Bartra, Sergi Roberto and Nolito also took part in the session, which began with
some warm up and ball control work.
