After an intense first day of its Asia tour, Barça returned to training in Bangkok at the first of two training sessions scheduled for this Tuesday. The 24 players traveling on the tour were all able to train normally except for Jonathan dos Santos, who worked apart from the group as he recovers from a right thigh injury that kept him out of last Friday’s Gamper Trophy match. Training took place again at the Thai Army Stadium in hot and humid conditions typical of the area.
Cristian Tello was able to train fully with the group at this morning’s session. The winger, who also missed the Gamper match owing to a pulled left hamstring, had only spent part of the session with his teammates on Monday.
The team continued with its physical training and preparing for the next friendly match, set for Wednesday against a selection of Thailand national team players. Barça will hold another training session this afternoon at 19:00 at the venue for tomorrow’s game, the Rajamangala National Stadium.
