get well soon Puyi!
The big news of course from yesterday’s training session was that Carles Puyol had to abandon the training camp five minutes into the session due to the injury sustained to his left calf. He and Dr. Celada went to the Clínica CEMTRO for further tests, and Nacho Monreal was called up to replace Puyi. Xavi, the other player that came into the concentración with discomfort, trained normally with the team. The bad news needs a dose of good to counteract it, so that’s why I’ve put in that picture of classy Xabi (even his hair looks super classy, in that old Hollywood movie star way), with the added bonus of a slightly blurry Iker Casillas.
The players also found the time to say “happy birthday” to Pepe Reina, who celebrated his 28th birthday yesterday. ¡Felicidades Pepe!
