After a few days working apart from the rest of the squad, aiming to get over their respective injuries, Xavi and Milito rejoined the group this morning for training at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.
Guardiola was able to call on a virtually full squad after the players who played on Tuesday missed
yesterday’s session and came back to join the rest this morning to prepare for
Saturday’s league game against Seville.
Back from injury
The best news for the boss was the return of Xavi and Milito to the rest
of the squad to train normally after their recent injuries.
Milito has been out since he suffered a thigh strain in training on Monday 18th October and
the doctors reckoned he’d be out for up to two weeks, whilst Xavi has been suffering with
Achilles tendon problems. The Spanish midfielder noticed some pain towards the end of the Valencia
game and only played the last few minutes of the Copenhagen game, before missing the Zaragoza and
18 from first team squad and Thiago
Only Jeffren was missing from the 18-man squad, as the youngster was ruled out for
four weeks after picking up a back injury against Ceuta. B team midfielder Thiago Alcántara also
joined the session.
Víctor Valdés joined the rest of the group late after doing some work
with physio Juanjo Brau whilst the other players did some ball work.
