Giampaolo keeps tight grip on training: possession and finishing on the menu today

Sampdoria’s focus in their second consecutive double training session was on building up play from the goalkeeper and creating goalscoring chances when in possession.

Marco Giampaolo kept a close eye on proceedings in Ponte di Legno today, barking out tactical instructions throughout the morning. After lunch, the players went through a series of circuits.

Only Valerio Verre was missing from the group, as the midfielder continued on his personal fitness programme.

The squad have another double session pencilled in for tomorrow.
