Those who eat together, stay together continues to be the dictum of Josep Guardiola. The club’s official website fcbarcelona.cat reports that following the pre-season training session in the evening, the players along with the technical staff are expected to gather for dinner at 9pm. This routine will be maintained until the squad leaves for Asia.
