Build-up to first friendly: possession and circuits in training

After a morning set aside for rest and recuperation, Sampdoria came out for an intense afternoon session in Ponte di Legno today.

The players began with an entertaining obstacle course before getting down to more serious business in the form of possession drills and then some circuit exercises.

Gaston Ramirez took full part in training, after spending the morning with Valerio Verre, who continues with his personalised fitness programme.

Marco Giampaolo will lead a light tactical session tomorrow morning before the first friendly of the summer against amateur side Sellero Novelle. Kick-off has been set for 17:30 CEST.
