This Wednesday, aside from the players who are doing specific training whilst recovering from injury, the main group included Jose Manuel Pinto, Javier Mascherano, Seydou Keita, Adriano Correia, Lionel Messi, and Andreu Fontàs. During the session they did some physical excercises, some ball work, and appropriate stretching excercises.

The B team players who took part in the session were Martin Montoya, Jordi Masip, Cristian Lobato, and Albert Dalmau. The youth player, Pol Calvet, completed the group.

Working away from the main group

Captain Carles Puyol, and Xavi Hernandez, followed their specific recovery schedule. Puyol is still recovering from his knee injury and Xavi is working to overcome the calf problems that prevented him going to Italy with the Spanish National team. As for Maxwell Scherrer and Ibrahim Afellay, they both did some specific excercises away from the main group.
