Wednesday morning’s training session was led by assistant coach Tito Vilanova, who worked with a group of thirteen players – six from the first team and seven from Barça B.
The second of the three training sessions scheduled for this week was a sparely attended affaire
due to the exodus of international players. In the absence of Josep Guardiola, the session was led
by his left-hand man, Tito Vilanova.
