After the win against Valencia at the Camp Nou on Sunday and a day off on Monday, Barça’s first team was back at work this Tuesday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. With a break in the league for international matches, the Barcelona squad training today was at a minimum.
Tito Vilanova only has five members of his team available: Puyol, Thiago, Fontàs, Pinto, and Dos Santos. To make up the numbers, ten players from Eusebio Sacristán’s team joined the first team’s session: Quintillà, Miguel Ángel, Masip, Gustavo, Patric, Román, Luis Alberto, Sergi Gómez, Espinosa, and Dongou.
Vilanova will not be present at the next training session, which will take place Wednesday at 10 at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Barcelona’s coach will be participating, together with the other major coaches from European football, at the annual coaches’ meeting held by UEFA in Nyon.
