Pique rejoins the group

Gerard Pique has handed Barcelona a boost by returning to the group in training this week.

The defender skipped involvement with Spain this international break to try and fully recover from a problematic groin injury suffered in recent weeks.

After a specialised programme through the past week, the defender yesterday evening rejoined his teammates for a full workout.

Jordi Alba continued to work outside of the main group, whilst Xavi Hernandez and Cristian Tello continued specific recovery programmes for respective injuries.
