Milito, a step closer to recovery


The Argentinian defender appeared on Monday on the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper turf. Having donned his boots, Gaby Milito exercised in isolation from the rest of the team.

Although there is no set date for his return, Gaby Milito is gradually heading back towards working for Josep Guardiola. He returned to Barcelona on September 9 to continue his recovery, and this was the first time he has been seen kicking a ball on the training ground.
