Edmílson rejoins the squad

Berta Brau / Jordi Clos

Five months after his knee operation, Edmilson was back with rest of the squad for training on Thursday morning, whilst Messi and Gudjohnson, with slight muscle strains trained apart from the rest of the group.

José Edmílson did some warm up exercises before joining the rest of the players for some ball control work. Giovani dos Santos who’d also been working on his own as he gets over his ankle injury, also joined in at this point.

After a gentle workout at the Masia, Leo Messi and Eidur Gudjohnsen, both with slight muscle strains, went into the gym to prepare for Saturday’s game against Espanyol.

The two groups, with Xavi and Iniesta moving between both groups, were: Ronaldinho, Edmílson, Milito, Puyol, Touré Yaya, Marc Crosas and Roca (trainer) on the one team and Ezquerro, Eto’o, Abidal, Márquez, Zambrotta, Bojan and Giovani on the other.

The session ended with some shooting practice.
