Dos Santos, Bartra, Sergi Roberto and Cuenca took part in the first team squad training session on Sunday evening at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.
The session was held at 19.00 on Sunday, ahead of Monday’s game against Villarreal at the
Camp Nou. B team youngsters Jonathan Dos Santos, Marc Bartra, Sergi Roberto and Isaac Cuenca were
called in to strengthen the squad, with Carles Puyol and Maxwell working with the whole group and
Gerard Piqué, Adriano Correia and Ibrahim Afellay working on recovering from their injuries.
Eligibility rule abolished
Up until this season, B team players were unavailable for the first team squad if
they had featured with the reserves in a game less than 48 hours before kick-off, but that rule has
now been abolished, allowing Guardiola to take any B team players he may need.
