Edgar Fornós / Vanessa Forns
After their win in Zaragoza, the squad were back in training this morning in a session in which thirteen B team players took part.
With Saturday night’s win under their belts, the squad switch their focus onto
Tuesday’s trip to Ceuta in the Cup, with a training session behind closed doors at the Ciutat
Esportiva Joan Gamper at 11-00 this morning.
13 B team players
One of the most important elements of this morning’s session was
the presence of thirteen B team players, with Dos Santos, Nolito, Fontàs, Riverola, Benja, Thiago,
Saúl, Rochina, O. Romeu, Miño, V. Vázquez, Edu Oriol and Bartra joining in with the first team
Guardiola decided to give eight of his players –Puyol, Pique, Iniesta, Alves, Messi,
Villa, Valdés and Busquets, a rest, but the last three decided to come in anyway and do some gentle
recovery work, whilst Xavi and Milito also continued with their own treatment apart from the rest
of the group.
Next session on Monday morning
The squad will be back in training on Monday at 11.00 and Puyol will
join the session, whilst the other seven rested players won’t be back until Tuesday.
