Two days after returning to training at Barcelona, Lionel Messi worked on Wednesday for the first time with the rest of the squad. The Argentine star, at least according to reports, appeared normal after all the soap opera that almost culminated with his departure from the Camp Nou in the current transfer window.
In addition to Lionel Messi, who also joined the group was the Brazilian Philippe Coutinho. Although he returned to training last week, he was working separately. Spain’s highlight in the League of Nations, Ansu Fati also joined the squad, as did Busquets.
The new Barcelona coach has changed the way training is done. With Koeman, activities in Barcelona last 1h30, that is, 30 minutes longer than in Setién times. The trainer demands a total surrender from the players, with the mantra that it is necessary to “train as it should”. It also does not tolerate delays and requires athletes to be at the training center an hour before training.
