The athletic trainer Pascal Sabato is satisfied with the start of the athletic training and the responses of the boys:
“The preparation for these two weeks went very well and ended yesterday morning with targeted work also in the pool (we are working on strength-endurance). Already in this first part of the preparation I am very satisfied with the response of the athletes both in terms of concentration and commitment and in terms of their physical condition. In these days they will rest on the holiday weekend, in order to resume work after mid-August. We are doing well according to the schedule made during the summer. ”
Word to the deputy captain Aimone Alletti, a veteran of the team, who speaks about the preparation and the championship at the gates: “It was two intense weeks but where we didn’t rush things. We worked a lot from the physical point of view with the trainer Pascal but with great caution. In the second week we also started adding technical elements with the coach. The spirit is really great and a nice mix is being created between old and new players. Obviously it will take time to create a real group, but the road really seems the right one.
The calendar sees a first game with the Italian champions followed by 4 or 5 games with direct competitors for salvation. It will therefore be essential to be ready both physically and mentally for the beginning of October. Each match will have to be played at 110%.
