Afellay’s first training session

December 29 was the day that Ibrahim Afellay met most of his new team mates in his first training session as a Barça player. He looked quite at home from the start.

The festivities are over and the players got back to work today with one new face among them, Ibrahim Afellay, the star FC Barcelona signing of just five days ago. Approaching 17.30, the Dutchman met his new colleagues and coaches and an hour later joined them on the training pitch.

Comfortable training

He warmed up and went through all the drills quite naturally. He was discrete about things, and accepted his roles gracefully – it doesn’t look like he is going to have too much difficulty settling in to his new routine.

Possible cup debut
