Medical: Marquez and Iniesta join group training

Barcalona's official website has announced that Barcelona players Andrés Iniesta (25) and Rafael Márquez (30) have joined the group training this morning.

Both players are in the final stage of their recovery and were able to take part in some exercises together with the rest of the squad.

Márquez suffered a fibre rupture in his left calf, the lower backpart of the leg, during a training session in the United States on Wednesday 5 August and was then expected to be out for ten to fifteen days.

Iniesta tore a quadriceps muscle on the front of his right thigh during the league game against Villarreal on Sunday 10 May and although he played the Champions League final against Manchester United on Wednesday 27 May, he has never fully recovered from that injury. On Friday 5 June, the medical staff of the Spanish football federation confirmed that the player has torn a muscle in his thigh and he was then expected to be out for the next six to eight weeks.

thats what we need backup went ever we have abseance players. why can we get Modric' he can play CM and LW, what you guys think about my comment.

Modric could do it; Benayoun would be great too i think. And of course Silva and Mata... etc. it's not just about who we want, it's who we can get... that's why it's tough.
