first_imgThe session will last one hour on the turf of the Itthitad in which Valencia and Madrid worked yesterday. In principle, the Catalans were going to train at Al Ahli, like Atlético, but the state of the turf of this second place is more precarious and would not have endured the training of two teams with just a few hours apart. That’s why he chose Itthitad. But reaching him has been a maze. The Culé team was scheduled to arrive at the Itthitad camp at 5:45 p.m. (3:45 p.m. Spanish time). Valverde and Busquets would then speak to the media and then the culé team would train for the semifinal but an unforeseen disrupted all plans.Half an hour after the scheduled time, the bus that led to the technician and the middle center had not yet reached the training center. The Barca expedition was divided into two. In one car were Valverde and Busquets, which in theory had to arrive before the field to offer press conferences and in another, the rest of the workforce. But there was a setback. The driver of the car that carried the Txingurri and the player headed to King Abdullah Sports stadium instead of the Ittihad field (40 minutes away) and was lost in a city of infernal traffic, with schizophrenic traffic jams and horns in each corner. The other bus, with the rest of the staff, arrived at the scheduled time (4:30 pm). Because of this, the press conferences of Busquets and Valverde, scheduled before training, were postponed to later.last_img read more
