First session of 2018 with Benevento on the horizon

The Blucerchiati were back at the training ground on Tuesday morning for their first session of the new year, with Saturday’s visit to Benevento now approaching.

Marco Giampaolo and the coaching staff had the squad do some aerobic work followed by a series of 10-a-side games on pitches of various sizes.

Karol Linetty took part in the full 70-minute workout with the rest of his team-mates.

Meanwhile Ricky Alvarez, Nicola Murru, Ivan Strinic amd Duvan Zapata did personalised work as they look to return to full match fitness.

The players will train morning and afternoon on Wednesday.
