Cesc Fabregas has already trained with his new teammates. The new Barça signing took part in the training session held on Monday evening at the Joan Gamper training ground.

First Barça training session for Cesc

This Monday Cesc has had a long, intense day. After passing his medical, signing the contract that ties him to the club, and having been officially presented as a new Barça player, he trained this evening with the rest of the group in the session that took place at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper, behind closed doors.

On the training pitch, and before the start of the session, the new Barça signing passed some time with some of the players who so far had only been his teammates with the Spanish team, like Andres Iniesta, David Villa, and Victor Valdés. He very quickly got into the group dynamics.

Busquets back with the squad

After the usual warm up, the players did some ball drills. Cesc’s group included manager Josep Guardiola and Sergio Busquets, who, since playing with the Spanish team in the game against Italy on August 10th, had not trained with the group due to the rib injury he sustained in that match.

Recovery work

The group basically did some recovery work, after the effort on Sunday in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Real Madrid in the Bernabeu, which ended in a 2-2 draw. The whole squad took part in the session, with the exception of Maxwell and Afellay, who are continuing with their recovery process. Puyol, meanwhile, was on the pitch, but working separately.

In addition to the first team, reserve team players Montoya, Dos Santos, Rosell Espinosa, Dalmau, and Oier took part in the session.
