Ernesto Valverde took control of FC Barcelona's training session this Friday, a session which was noticeable for the return of Sergi Samper and Thomas Vermaelen to the main group.
The players involved in the Copa del Rey match against Levante had a post-match recovery session.
As for the rest of the squad, including the first team members given a rest against Levante (Messi, Suarez, Pique, Rakitic and Jordi Alba), they trained as normal. Samper and Vermaelen are both in the final stages of their respective recoveries from injury.
The rest of the players were made up from Barça B squad members: Iñaki Peña, Wague, Oriol Busquets and Riqui Puig.
