Iniesta back running


This Monday Andrés Iniesta went running again at Camo Nou to kick off the second stage of his recovery from injury.

The Barça midfielder picked up a thigh injury on 4 November in the Champions League clash with Basel and was forecast to be out for 6 to 8 weeks. Since then he has been receiving treatment and now, right on target at twenty days later, he’s beginning the second stage of his recovery programme.
