MILANELLO - The team went through the first of its two sessions this morning. 
The players started with a series of warm-ups over the hurdles and then some floor exercises in the covered area before the defenders along with Essien and De Jong moved out to the raised pitch to practice defensive drills.
The rest of the team remained in the covered area to complete further athletic exercises which included runs over the low hurdles.
The players returned for the second session at 15.30 and worked out in the gym while Honda went for a run and the goalkeepers trained on the upper pitch.
