Life in the old dog yet! Carles Puyol flies into a challenge during ‘Rondos’ at Barcelona training
He may be retiring at the end of the season, but don’t expect Carles Puyol to let up on the intensity.
The Catalan Tarzan was in the zone during Barcelona’s game of Rondos at training yesterday, reminding his teammates that he’s gone nowhere just yet.
Paired with Pique in the game of piggy in the middle, Puyol lunged in on a challenge to try and nick the ball from Pedro, but the Canarian was too quick for him and released the ball just in time.
They’ve been warned: there’s life in the old dog yet!
(Puyi’s full-blooded challenge is can be seen from 2:30)
