20 players report for training

The players were back in training on Thursday after Wednesday evening’s victory in the Joan Gamper Trophy. Guardiola was able to work with the full squad except for Swedish international Ibrahimovic, who exercised in the gym due to an ankle problem.

The absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the main talking point of Thursday’s training session. A total of 20 players worked out on the Club's training grounds including Hleb and Cáceres. However, Puyol and Adriano exercised separately from the main group. There were no players from the reserve squad as Barça B are preparing their first league match of the season against Celta Vigo.

Specific exercises for Puyol and Adriano

Congratulations to Adriano

Before the session got underway, Josep Guardiola congratulated Adriano for his performance in Wednesday evening’s match. A nice gesture by the manager, who had also mentioned the Brazilian in his press conference prior to the Joan Gamper Trophy.
