The squad were back in training this morning as they prepared for Sunday’s game against Getafe. Jefrren, who has been out since the Cup tie with Ceuta, was back on the training ground for the first time since his injury.
The players enjoyed a day off on Wednesday following the 1-1 draw with
Copenhagen, but were back under Josep Guardiola’s orders at the Ciutat Esportiva this
morning, preparing for their next league encounter, this Sunday at Getafe.
Jeffren, who suffered a back injury against Ceuta on 26th October, was
originally ruled out for four weeks and today he began his recovery on the training pitch, working
with the first team physio and even doing a little ball work.
Xavi, Messi, Piqué and Iniesta in the gym
As for the rest of the squad, Xavi, Messi, Piqué and Iniesta –who all started
against Copenhagen- stayed in the gym to train apart from the rest of the squad.
Three from the B team
The B team representatives at the session today were Jonathan Soriano,
Martí Riverola and Thiago.
Following the usual warm up and ball control exercises, the group split into two
groups: one made up of the players who featured in Denmark, who did some gentle jogging, whilst the
rest did some circuit training.
