MILANELLO - The team were back in training for an afternoon session ahead of the return of Serie A and the match against Atalanta on January 6.
The team started with a warm-up which included some running over different distances. When the players completed their athletic stage they moved on to some ball work. The first drill was passing the ball between five points.
There was then a ball possession drill between two cones. After six consecutive passes the ball had to be passed to assistant coach Mauro Tassotti who then hit a pass for a counter-attack to the other end of the pitch.
Urby Emanuelson missed outon this drill to complete some running drills. Marco Amelia trained normally with the goalkeepers. Robinho was back at Milanello and after a gym workout he moved out to the pitch for a series on runs. Ignazio Abate and Valter Birsa trained in the gym.
The team will end the year tomorrow with a double session.
