Three players have come to the Ciutat Esportiva this morning and have shown that way that their holidays have ended sooner than expected. These players are Gerard Piqué, Sergio Busquets and Javier Mascherano. The three of them had to come back on next Monday (the 1st of August) but they have decided, according to SPORT, to start the pre-season on this Thursday, with medical tests and a low-intensity training.
The preparatory session was led by the fitness coach of Barça B, Ismael Camenforte, and the chief physiotherapist of the first team, Juanjo Brau. It was a very low-intensity training session to start getting used to working sessions.
SPORT had announced that Ter Stegen would also shorten his holidays to come back on Thursday. For now, he hasn't been seen at the Ciutat Esportiva, also it is not ruled out that he eventually shows up on the 8th of August, his official return date.
