Jérémy Mathieu didn't train with the group
All the team is united, even to congratulate Luis Enrique. This Friday May 8, just one day before playing against Real Sociedad in La Liga, the coach turns 45, and all the squad applauded him.
The team will reach this match at their best level, after the 3-0 win versus Bayern Munich. However, three Liga matches are left (unless the last two ones are cancelled due to strike for the TV rights) and the two-point margin with Real Madrid doesn't allow the team to be calm.
This Friday all the players trained on Tito Vilanova's field except Mathieu, who kept doing recovery work related to his discomfort on his right Achilles tendon.
Luis Enrique has been linked to Barça for many years and on his birthday he can also celebrate he is in a perfect situation, close to titles, only one month of competition and 6 matches left in case they reach UCL final. Next opponent, Real Sociedad at Camp Nou, this Saturday at 6pm (CEST).
