No rest for squad

Sandra Sarmiento / Jordi Clos

The players had a light training session on Monday after the previous night’s win against Almería. Eric Abidal, who has a slight ankle problem, worked out in the gym and did not join the rest of the squad on the training grounds.

The players began by warming up and then Ronaldinho and Zambrotta carried on with specific post match recovery exercises while the rest of the group took part in ball control exercises before doing some sprinting and practising long passes. Most of the players who took part in last night’s match then returned to the dressing rooms.

Ankle knock for Abidal

Eric Abidal was absent from training due to a heavy knock to his right ankle picked up against Almería. The French international defender stayed for special attention in the gym.

Intense work for Edmílson

Meanwhile, José Edmílson appeared on the training grounds for a demanding individual session of jogging and circuit training with obstacles.
