“They have a huge desire to help the team and participate from inside, until now they have helped from the outside and both have been fundamental keys of this team, of the group dynamics. They have integrated very well with the team from the begining, very well accepted and now they only need to enjoy what the team do on the pitch”

STORY: Barcelona’s first team trained on Tuesday (December 29), ready for Wednesday’s (December 30) La Liga match against Real Betis.

It was the team’s third day of training after the Christmas holiday. Lionel Messi returned from Dubai for Monday’s session having received an award there as Best Player of the Year.

The club said that Messi will make his 500th appearance in a Barca shirt at the Betis match, which is the last of 2015.

During 2015 Barcelona won five major titles including La Liga, the UEFA Champions League and Spain’s Kings Cup.

Coach Enrique told reporters on Tuesday that right back Aleix Vidal and midfielder Arda Turan were fundamental keys of his team.

The two were recruited at the end of last season, Vidal in June and Turan in August, but are not allowed to join the league until a FIFA transfer ban ends. This is due on January 4.

Both players have trained with the team extensively and will be able to play immediately.

“They have a huge desire to help the team and participate from inside,” said Enrique. “Until now they have helped from the outside and both have been fundamental keys of this team, of the group dynamics. They have integrated very well with the team from the begining, very well accepted and now they only need to enjoy what the team do on the pitch.”

Freed from the sanction, imposed for two transfer periods for violating rules on young player transfers, Barcelona will be able to transfer new players from January 4.
