Back to work for squad

Marc Guillén / Anna Segura

The squad were back in training this morning after their two day break and began preparations for Saturday’s game in Valladolid. Good news was the reappearance of Jeffren, whilst on the downside, Sergio Busquets was forced to watch from the sidelines

With no Cup or European commitments till the end of February, the squad find themselves facing six weeks with just a game a week – something which hasn’t happened for a while, but there was no sign of a drop in commitment or effort in this morning’s training session, the first after Saturday’s win against Seville.

Jeffren on his way back

Although he’s not yet been given the full medical okay, Jeffren is clearly well on his way to a full recovery.

Puyol in perfect condition

Unfortunately the same isn’t true for Sergio Busquets who’s been ordered to rest for a week after the knock to his kidneys on Saturday and he was forced to sit out this morning’s session and watch from the sidelines.

Abidal and Chyigrinskiy tested

FIFA decides not to punish Henry
FIFA’s disciplinary committee decided this Monday that there was to be no punishment for Thierry Henry for his handball in the France –Ireland World Cup playoff game in Paris, concluding that there was "no legal foundation" to deal with the case. The committee added: "there is no other legal text that would allow the committee to impose sanctions for any incidents missed by match officials."
