Bartomeu pays surprise visit to Barca training with Riqui Puig the only B team player to participate
- Despite attending the senior's four previous training sessions, Puig returned to the B team this morning.
- However, he was back for the evening session.
- Bartomeu has also attended the training.
Hold your outrage! After missing the morning season with the first team, midfielder Riqui Puig has rejoined his older teammates this evening. The youngster has participated in each and every training prior to that, so there is probably nothing to worry about as he is still very much a part of Ernesto Valverde's plans.
However, Riqui wasn't the only surprise inclusion in the evening session. Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has also attended the Ciutat Esportiva training ground to chat with the player and Ernesto Valverde and watch the team's preparations.
As a reminder, Puig was expected to travel with the first team for the Asian tour, as Barcelona are set to take on Chelsea and Iniesta's current club Vissel Kobe in Japan next week.
The expected squad for the Asia tour:
Barcelona B players: Inaki Pena, Oriol Busquets, Alex Collado, Riqui Puig and Carles Perez.
