The Thursday training session took place under intensive rain. Dani Alves was absent after getting injured in the Champions league game with Rubin Kazan.

They were set to start at 18.00, but eventually started later than that because the players had had a meeting with members of the Fundació Sant Joan de Déu who are researching the RETT syndrome, and were presented with the money that was collected last season in the form of fines paid by the players.

No Alves

Henry in isolation

Thierry Henry, is also recovering from injury, in this case to the femoral biceps in his right leg, but he worked on his own in the company of one of the club’s fitness coaches.
