The team continued to prepare for Sunday’s match with Espanyol.
Gareth worked on his recovery (partly outside), Cris rejoined the group and the Pips were in force (Llorente, Odegaard and Mayoral).
James sent a sweet birthday message to a young Colombian girl, Magali Gonzalez Sierra, who suffers from progeria. Progeria is a rare (and fatal) genetic disorder that causes the appearance accelerated aging in children. Most progeria patients only live until their mid-teens/early twenties. Magali is celebrating her 15th birthday.
I hope Magali had a fantastic day and I’m sure that a special message from cutie James (complete with saucy wink!) definitely made her birthday more festive!
