Carles Puyol, Xavi and Andrés Iniesta will travel to Scotland on Wednesday to join up with the FC Barcelona first team for their first taste of pre-season training after reporting in to Camp Nou for a medical this morning.

The trio that helped Spain to win the European Championships this summer had a complete set of tests to judge their physical state at the hands of the club's doctors.

Starting on Wednesday

None of the players had any problems at all and by 11.30am were all given the green light to begin pre-season, which they will do in St Adnrews on Wednesday.

"It is one of those coincidences that happen in football and it is very important that he now uses his experience to help the team and to ensure we all do what he wants," the midfielder said.

New campaign

Looking ahead to the new season, Iniesta continued: "I hope that I can stay fit and that the team can start to win trophies again to cheer the fans up. We will give it everything we have so that we can enjoy the season."
