Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba: We're now refreshed

Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba says the players feel refreshed after returning to training.

LaLiga Santander is set to get back underway on June 11, with Barcelona currently topping the table, and the left-back believes they're ready to compete for silverware.

"I've seen the team with a lot of desire," Alba told TVE.

"I think we've come back very well physically and mentally we're in a better place than when we left."

Naturally, the 31-year-old was quizzed about Neymar, with the Brazilian never far from rumours linking him with a Camp Nou return.

"There are some players who choose other things and have other goals," Alba said.

"But it's clear that he was a unique player and that he gave us a lot."
