Voluntary training on a rest day

Although Pep Guardiola had given the first team the day off on Monday, Puyol, Milito, Pinto, Abidal, Mascherano, Thiago and Bojan went to the Joan Gamper training ground on a voluntary basis.

Voluntary training on a rest day

Following the recovery session on Sunday, Barça won’t return to training until Tuesday morning. However, some players took advantage of the day off that Pep Guardiola had conceded, to train at the Joan Gamper training ground. The Spanish Cup Final is on Wednesday and they all want to be 100% fit for the decisive stretch of the season.

Pinto and Milito, normal activity

On field # 1 at the training ground Jose Manuel Pinto, who has been the habitual goalkeeper in the Cup games this season, and could also start in Wednesday's final against Real Madrid, did some work. Alongside him, the defender Gaby Milito also trained.

Puyol keeps working

Captain Carles Puyol was one of the other players at training. The central defender, who reappeared against Madrid but unfortunately suffered a hamstring strain in his left thigh during the course of the game, did some recovery work. Puyol said at a press conference Sunday that he was waiting to see how the injury evolved these days to see if he might be available for selection on Wednesday.

Abidal was also at the training ground. The French player did some running, as in recent days, and as part of the natural recovery process, also did some ball work.
