Arda Turan was unable to take part with the rest of the squad, working out on his own instead having a problem in his right foot. Barça have performed their second training session in Los Angeles after their first night on US territory. The team’s first session has worked out at the StubHub Center a few hours after arriving in California. Unlike the first session, in training on Monday morning local time, Luis Enrique has not been able to call on all his squad. The coach had 23 players under his watchful eye as pre-season preparations continued.
The squad have been invited to a visit from a well known Barça fan, Kobe Bryant from one of the biggest basketball stars in the NBA . The LA Lakers player had his photo taken with the blaugranes and exchange shirts with the squad and coaching staff.
Following this latest training session the squad has further commitments before training once again in the afternoon local time in a session open to the public at 6.30pm. That will be the last session before their first game in the International Champions Cup against LA Galaxy at the Pasadena Rose Bowl.
