Valdés back on training pitch

Valdes – still recovering from his foot and calf injuries – was back on the training pitch this morning.

Barça continued their preparations for this Sunday’s game at the Camp Nou against Valladolid with a Thursday morning training session. Victor Valdes was a welcome returnee to the session – working out on the pitch as part of his recovery from the foot and calf injuries which have kept him out of the last two league games. Adriano, Abidal and Dani Alves all worked apart, whilst Messi was with the physio and B team keeper Miguel Bañuz joined the rest of the squad .
