The holidays are over for the Argentinian and the Mexican, and the two players started their fitness programmes at the club this Monday.

At La Masia, Gaby Milito trained on Monday for the first time as a Barça player, where he was joined by Rafa Márquez, another Barça player to be given a few extra days vacation after having appeared at the Copa America in Venezuela.

An hour of work

The session was the first of a series of fitness routines designed to get the players into condition for training with the rest of the squad when they return from the Asian tour.

Work off the ball
