In the afternoon, when the heat fell in Madrid, Atlético would once again fill the grass of the sports city of Majadahonda to start the second session of the day, at the end of what are the first two weeks of preseason, the hardest, in which the physical principles of what will later be the year are imposed, although Cholo in 2021 may have fewer players than ever (7 from the first team, plus Felipe and Arias already incorporated and 15 kids from the subsidiary). He left samples of what may be the first game of the preseason, in two days.
And is that the session was divided into two parts, a first physical (20 minutes) and another ball. Marcos Paulo, who returned to work yesterday afternoon with his colleagues and completed part of the training, now I did it whole. Simeone took the opportunity to finalize what will be his first eleven. And it will be special. Perhaps, for the first time, you have a Simeone at your command.
Oblak in the goal, Ricard and Hermoso on the wings, Kondogbia and Alberto in the center, Saúl and Soriano on the wings and Camello and Giuliano Simeone are some of the pieces that he meditates in a party that is summer, in which you will be able to see little because the coach is barely 'older', but it can also be historical, from Cholo to Simeone, the legacy continues at Atlético. Giuliano has not stopped making merits for it since he arrived.
