Mapei Sport tests and tactical drills ahead of first friendly
A morning of fitness tests and an afternoon spent on tactics – that was Sampdoria’s agenda on their second day of training in the cool mountain air of Ponte di Legno.
The Blucerchiati were split into three groups for the morning programme with staff from Mapei Sport research centre, who travelled up to the Camonica Valley to record the precise fitness levels of each and every member of the squad – the start of a season-long monitoring of the team’s training processes.
In the afternoon, the lads warmed up before Eusebio Di Francesco guided them through a series of tactical drills.
On Wednesday the squad will train in the morning ahead of their first pre-season friendly: local side Sellero Novelle will provide the opposition at 17:30 CEST. Entrance to the match is free.
