Bianconeri back with the ball at their feet

Following this morning’s fitness tests, Juventus return to the training ground for an afternoon technical session

The Juventus squad have got straight down to business in a busy first day of training in Vinovo, building on this morning’s fitness session with technical activities in the afternoon.

After completing scientific fitness tests developed by the Mapei Research Center this morning, an extremely useful exercise in terms of the information it provides the coaching staff with, the focus of this afternoon’s workout shifted to the ball.

Antonio Conte put his men through a number of dribbling and skills tests, enabling them to re-familiarise themselves with having the ball at their feet after a long summer break.

With a day’s work now under their belts, Conte will again conduct a double session tomorrow ahead of the Bianconeri’s first workout at Châtillon’s Stadio Brunod on Friday morning.
