    Double session in front of Bianconeri fans gets the ball rolling on a busy Monday of pre-season work at Juventus Center

    A morning programme of fitness and conditioning in the gym laid the foundations for a good day’s work at Juventus Center as Massimiliano Allegri’s men began their pre-season preparations in earnest.

    After returning to the team hotel for a quick rest earlier in the afternoon, the Bianconeri emerged into the Vinovo sunshine just after 17.30 CEST to a warm reception from supporters housed in the small stand by the training pitches. 

    A half hour downpour beforehand had threatened to dampen the day for the Juventus fans who had gathered to watch their favourite stars up close but the sun returned right on cue.

    The Bianconeri boss made the most of the pristine playing surfaces, basing his first full session with the bulk of his squad on the retention of possession under pressure.

    After a brief warm-up, the players were split into two separate games of five-a-side with the condition that after seven successful passes they could advance to the other end of the field to put the ball in the net.

    As the intensity increased, the day's ball-work reached its climax in a 10 versus 10 match of keep ball. 

    The squad rounded off the day with some high energy intervals but before they headed for the dressing room they stopped to sign autographs and pose for photos with the fans waiting patiently for the conclusion of the session. 

    The reigning Italian champions will be back tomorrow morning for the first of a double-header of workouts.
