MILANELLO – Training started at 15.00 at the Milanello sports centre yesterday ahead of Milan-Verona this evening. The first match of the second half of the season and also the first match for Clarence Seedorf and coach of the Rossoneri.
Training started with a run to warm up followed by the players involved in a stretching session with some calisthenics.
The team then moved onto some ball work working on possession on a reduced pitch. This was followed up by some tactical considerations ahead of Sunday evening’s match against Andrea Mandorlini’s side at the San Siro.
Training ended with a practice match on half the pitch with goalkeepers.
Here’s the squad called up for Clarence Seedorf’s first match in charge:
Abbiati, Amelia, Gabriel, Bonera, De Sciglio, Mexes, Rami, Silvestre, Zaccardo, Zapata, Birsa, Cristante, Emanuelson, De Jong, Honda, Kakà, Montolivo, Nocerino, Poli, Balotelli, Petagna, Robinho.
