Happy birthday to Keita


Gabriel Milito was the only absentee from FC Barcelona's training session in the Miniestadi on Friday morning as the players all wished Seydou Keita a happy 29th birthday.

Preparations for the visit of Deportivo de La Coruña this weekend continued with 23 players president as Lionel Messi and Andrés Iniesta had shaken off knocks while Dani Alves and Sergio Busquets returned to action having worked in the gym on Thursday. Víctor Sánchez also trained alongside the rest of the squad despite not being given the all clear to play again by the club's medics.

As usual now, the FC Barcelona coaching staff will not name the squad until the day of the match and the players themselves will also not find out until then either.
