The Portuguese midfielder was one of 21 first team players that took part in the session in front of La Masia. Only the injured trio of Lionel Messi, Oleguer Presas and Albert Jorquera were missing. The new faces from the day before were Touré Yaya and Gaby Milito, who had trained in the gym on Wednesday. Three B teamers were also present as Fali, Eneko and Víctor Vázquez joined in.
