FC Barcelona’s first team held its first training session of the 2013-14 season this Tuesday morning. The session took place on pitch no. 1 of the Ciutat Esportiva and 12 players took part: Pinto, Oier, Montoya, Bartra, Mascherano, Adriano, Song, Sergi Roberto, Dos Santos, Messi, Tello, and Alexis.
Three of the fifteen players who returned for the preseason on Monday are currently injured: Puyol, Cuenca, and Afellay. Barça’s captain is recovering from surgery which removed a Baker’s cyst from his right knee this past June, Cuenca is working back from an arthroscopic stabilization of the meniscus in his right knee, while Afellay recovers from a muscle injury to the quadriceps of his right leg. All three spent this morning’s session doing recovery work.
Tito Vilanova’s squad will train again this afternoon at 19:00 hours.
