The Barcelona reserve team started work on the 2011/12 season this Monday morning. Eusebio, on his first day on the job, divided the squad in two: some worked out on the pitch and the others took medical tests.
Eusebio Sacristán had his full squad at his disposal for the first time at the Ciutat Esportiva
Joan Gamper. On the first day back, they trained both in the morning and afternoon.
At 10.00 am, eleven players appeared on the pitch in Sant Joan Despí:
Bartra, Riverola, Romeu, Rosell, Dalmau, Saúl, Lobato, Oier, Masip, Sergi Roberto and Planas. A
second block took the traditional start-of-season medical exams: Cuenca, Femenía, Gustavo, Soriano,
Balliu, Espinosa, Miño, Montoya, Armando, Muniesa, Ilie, Carmona and Tello.
The roles were exchanged for the afternoon session. Four players were absent, namely Rafa
Alcántara, Deulofeu and Sergi Gómez, who are playing for the Spain Under 19 squad, and Jonathan dos
Santos, who has special permission to extend his vacations.
Tuesday in Navata
After the two sessions at the Ciutat Esportiva, Barça B will be travelling to
l’Empordà to stay at the TorreMirona Golf&Spa Resort in Navata. They leave on Tuesday at
midday and will train for the first time that afternoon in the place they will be staying from July
12 to July 18.
