David Saura

Deco has left FC Barcelona's tour of Asia to fly straight to São Paulo where his wife has given birth to their fourth child, who has been named David.

The Portuguese international, who was awaiting news from Brazil, had to travel at midday to be with his wife, Jacciara, after she gave birth to the couple's fourth child. Both mother and son are said to be in excellent health.

Congratulations from the squad

As the players headed off towards morning training at the Fengtai Stadium, Frank Rijkaard announced the news to the squad that Deco had departed. The midfielder later received messages of congratulations from all his team-mates.

Deco left the Westin Beijing Hotel and caught a plane to London and then hopped on a connecting flight to head to São Paulo. The former Porto star is due to return to Barcelona to continue pre-season training when the squad is back from the Far East tour.

Sylvinho remains cautious
As a precautionary measure, Sylvinho has undergone a specific training session on Saturday morning. The Brazilian full-back suffered a muscle strain in his right leg, but it is not thought that it will prevent him from playing Barça's second game of the tour in Japan.
