Quiet time at training complex
FC Barcelona's Ciutat Esportiva training complex has been a quiet place after coach Pep Guardiola gave the first team squad a holiday until next Tuesday, but the youth players are set to be joined by the Brazil national team.
While there are none of the Blaugrana stars on the pitches or in changing rooms and gymnasium, the
B team are continuing to work and the Brazil squad will arrive on Friday evening at the start of a
get-together. The Barça's players that are not away on international duty have four days off in
order to focus and relax, despite only having played one league encounter.
The pitches at the training complex will also be given a chance to bed
in before the season truly kicks in next week when all the players return and the hard work begins.
Boys from Brazil
Brazil arrive at 17:00 on Friday and will spend three days training at the Ciutat Esportiva.
Their schedule is set to include a friendly against Barça B on pitch seven in what could be an
unforgettable experience for so many of Luis Enrique's young squad.
