Afternoon training at the “Artemio Franchi” stadium for the bianconeri who sweated for about two hours. Intense activity after the warm-up between running in line and mobilization of the lower body alternating with sprint-braking and sprint-changes of direction to prepare the muscles for technical-tactical work. The athletic trainer Sandro Bencardino concentrated a lot on explosive strength and recovery, preparatory to the technical exercises with the ball, coordinated by the assistant coach Gaetano Caridi, which included the final shot on goal.
Mister Alberto Gilardino, before the authentically tactical activity, made a small rotation of Small Sided Games, some two-touch matches with network transformation and then a match on a reduced pitch on two halves. Custom seat for Marco Meli who, even today, has increased the loads and intensity.
Special guest at the “Franchi” stadium was the Juventus president Armen Gazaryan who attended the whole training session together with the sporting director Giorgio Perinetti. Preparation continues tomorrow in Castellina Scalo.
