First Team


Robinho and Alexandre Pato were back at Milanello with the former taking part in training and the latter working out in the gym.

MILANELLO - Milan trained in the afternoon ahead of the opening league game of the season at Cagliari on Saturday.

Training started at 17.30 on the raised pitch on the shoulder of the gym, with a warm-up lasting for around half an hour and ending with runs over the small hurdles.

The session continued a ball possession drill on a 30 metre by 30 metre pitch followed by a match in the same area with four small goals. The session ended with a further 20-minute match.

Pato and Robinho returned in the afternoon in time for training although Robinho took part, with Pato working out in the gym.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic went through a personalised programme before finishing off in the gym. Clarence Seedorf ran 100m by 100ms while Stephan El-Shaarawy underwent a performance test, first in the cover pitch and then the raised pitch. Valoti trained in the sanded area.

Tomorrow's session will take place at 10.00.
