Double session on Thursday as Sabatini arrives at training camp

Walter Sabatini joined the Blucerchiati party in Ponte di Legno on Thursday as the squad were put through another double workout on their fourth day of training in the mountains.

The Sampdoria technical director, who arrived at the team’s training camp on Wednesday night, observed proceedings from the sidelines in the company of sporting director Carlo Osti.

Valerio Verre joined in with his team-mates for the morning session – which involved muscle activation in the gym followed by tactical drills for the midfielders and forwards – but trained separately in the afternoon while the squad did high-intensity rondos and training games.

Gaston Ramirez was accompanied by club doctor Amedeo Baldari for diagnostic tests.

Another double workout awaits the team on Friday.
