In just two day’s time, Antonio Conte’s men will be on the hunt for trophies for the first time in the 2013/14 season when they take on Lazio in the Italian Super Cup at the Stadio Olimpico, and they continued to prepare themselves for the challenge this morning in Rome.
Having arrived in the Eternal City yesterday, the Bianconeri trained at the first class facilities of the Centro Sportivo Principale/Agonistico Nazionale della Marina Militare for the first time earlier today.
Not by chance, there were a number of other famous sporting faces going about their own training sessions at the complex, among whom were Italy’s diving champions Tommaso Rinaldi, Michele Benedetti and Tommaso Marconi, along with members of the Italian synchronised swimming team who included Cristina Tempera, Beatrice Callegari and Elisa Bozzo. European open-water swimming champion Luca Ferretti was also in action.
The Juve group, who joined up with the twelve Bianconeri recently involved in international fixtures, carried out a fitness and tactics based session in which they began to put into practice the ideas devised by Conte to try and conquer the Biancocelesti.
