Mixed training session in Temu
After a morning split between work on the pitch (goalkeepers) and in the swimming pool (the rest of the squad), the Sampdoria players reconvened at the Temu training ground to continue their pre-season activities. The Blucerchiati, who were under the watchful eye of sporting director Carlo Osti, took part in a mixed training session that involved drills relating to technique, fitness and tactics. The only player to sit it out was Nicola Murru, who underwent a recovery session. Eusebio Di Francesco and his staff will put their charges through their paces on Friday in a double session.
