The Barcelona squad had some hours off on Tuesday ahead of Thursday’s Club World cup semi-final against Guangzhou Evergrande. Luis Enrique, after a morning training session, gave the players the rest of the day off after a busy last few days.
Since Barça arrived in Japan on Monday morning, the team hasn’t stopped for a minute. It’s for that reason that Luis Enrique gave them some time to relax after a light session in the morning.
Neymar, for example, opted to take a walk around the area surrounding the hotel. Other players preferred to stay in their rooms and rest, while others when for some food in the spectacular mall near to the club’s base in Yokohama, the Hotel Royal Park.
The players have a certain amount of time to themselves, but they were given a time to be back in their rooms by, given Wednesday will be the final day to prepare for their semi-final. Luis Enrique and Gerard Pique will give press conferences on Wednesday.
