MILANELLO - The team were back training after two days off. The session started at 15.00 with a warm-up in the covered area. The players then moved outside for some running and stretching.
The team then played a ten against ten practice match with a free player playing for whichever side had the ball. Muntari and Alex trained with the group as did El Shaarawy while De Sciglio worked out in the gym. De Jong and Abate also followed personalised programmes in the gym.
 Training will take place at 15.00 today and then there will be another afternoon session on Tuesday followed by a double session on Wednesday, with afternoon work-outs for the rest of the week.
