Neymar returns to Barcelona after the end of year festivities
As scheduled, foreign players who play for Barcelona returned to the Catalan club on Thursday. Among them was Brazilian star Neymar, who spent the end of the year in Brazil.
Brazilian full-back, Daniel Alves, however, was unable to join up with his teammates as he is recovering from a fever.
In addition to Neymar, Javier Mascherano, Alexis Sánchez and Alex Song joined the rest of the team in Barcelona. Lionel Messi also joins the team after recovering from injury. The Spanish players reunited for training on Monday.
Tata Martino should have a full squad to choose from for Barcelona’s first match of 2014. The Catalans will face Elche in the league at the Nou Camp on Sunday.
