Mascherano ups recovery

Javier Mascherano continued his recovery from knee ligament damage by rejoining his Barcelona teammates for part of training today.

The Argentine has so far been recovering on his own after injuring his knee in the Catalans’ Champions League quarter-final first leg clash with Paris Saint-Germain at the start of April.

However, the midfielder who often plays at centre-back was back working alongside his teammates for at least part of Wednesday’s workout, as he stepped up his recovery.

Pedro Rodriguez also returned to the session after missing the weekend match against Real Betis with a stomach bug, but Victor Valdes continued to train separately with a foot injury.
