Training with the B team


Frank Rijkaard had only seven first-team players to work with at training on Tuesday, so he joined forces with Barça B for a session in the Miniestadi.

With only Víctor Valdés, Albert Jorquera, Oleguer, Sylvinho, Santi Ezquerro, Gabi Milito and Lionel Messi to count on, Rijkaard linked up with Pep Guardiola to train. Messi and Milito are also due to leave soon as they travel to Australia for a friendly game with the Argentinian national team on September 11.

All the young dudes
