Prohibited to make ‘bell’ in the friendly of Australia

Entrenamiento del Barcelona

FC Barcelona has two games left to put an end to the season. The two are absolutely inconsequential, since the blaugrana team has achieved the minimum objective that was proposed when Xavi Hernández took over the team at the beginning of November: to qualify for the Champions League and finish second to also dispute the Spanish Super Cup. With these two challenges assumed, the matches against Villarreal in it Camp Nou next Sunday of The league and the friendly against a team of footballers from Australia in sydney of Wednesday May 25 are presented as mere formalities.

In any case, those who believed that after the game against the Castellón team they could start thinking about vacations are very wrong. And it is that Xavi is going to summon all the available players for this friendly, including the internationals who will participate a week later in the Nations League. And it is that in the contract that the Blaugrana club has signed, the presence of all the players is required, with the exception of the injured ones. Failure to comply with this clause would carry a penalty that the entity is not willing to assume in any case.

Hence, all the available players in the squad will be forced to jump through hoops and complete a lightning trip, of just over 72 hours, to Australiawith the added inconvenience of spending more than half the hours on a plane.

Once they return to Barcelonathe first team will put an end to the season, although as we have already explained, for some it will only be a point and apart, since several days of the Nations Leaguewhich begins in the month of June.

The rest will be able to enjoy holidays for more than a month, since in principle July 4th is the date chosen by Xavi to start the preseason.
