SPAIN - BARCELONA'S Thierry Henry and Andres Iniesta took part in the team's final training session yesterday before leaving for the Champions League final against Manchester United.
The Spanish champions said on their website that neither player trained fully at the Camp Nou due to leg injuries but would likely be available for tomorrow's final at Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
"The overall impression is good, as much for the players as us knowing we can have them," Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez said.
Henry injured his right knee in a 6-2 win at Real Madrid on May 2, while Iniesta hurt his right thigh in a 3-3 draw with Villarreal on May 10.
Henry has scored 25 goals this season but missed the 1-1 semifinal draw at Chelsea, where Iniesta's late equaliser sent Barcelona through.
Barcelona are looking to become only the fifth team to win three major trophies in one season after having also won the Copa del Rey.
Meanwhile, United's coach Sir Alex Ferguson is confident Rio Ferdinand will be fit for the final tomorrow despite being forced to leave him out of his side's victory at Hull.
United, already crowned champions for the third successive season, completed their domestic campaign with a 1-0 win at the KC Stadiuml.
But it was Ferdinand's fitness that occupied United minds after the match. The England centre-back has missed the last four games with a calf problem and has been undergoing intensive treatment in a bid to get him fit for tomorrow's final in Rome.
He trained with the United squad on Saturday and was expected to play some part in his side's trip to Humberside but was left out of Ferguson's squad on Sunday.
But Ferguson remains upbeat about Ferdinand's chances of being fit for the final. - Sapa-AFP
