Our team spent first full day in Russia today, preparing for game against Rubin Kazan.
Today they trained in the rain, Pep and Pique spoke with press, Tito spoke about Messi and his injury.
Guardiola met with press and spoke about game agains Rubin, but he also was asked about Messi of course (click here to read summary)
Well conference with press is not complete without photos;)
Gerard also met with media, he was talking about game too, and Messi. So the same as Pep.
Tito Vilanova about Messi for BarcaTV: “we are watching to see how he feels … it is important for him to recover well, with injuries like this, sometimes if you don’t recover properly, there can be long term problems”. So, for him, Messi’s fitness a more important issue tan Wednesday’s result against Kazan. “It is important but not that much, it’s only the second game in the group” he said.
David Villa, who was shown a red card on Saturday at the San Mamés, has been issued a one-match suspension.
And now the best part: our boys and Boss at training session!
Messi has been the center of attention of those who have witnessed the first and only training in Kazan. The team trained on the pitch ( they will play game there too) under heavy rain.
I think it's time for LOAD of photos:
