June arrives and with this a photo that was produced for two and a half months, before the pandemic, far, far: that of the teams exercising fully. Gone are the works individually, with a bubble of free meters around, then in groups of 10, from 14 a week ago. That was left behind. Atlético is already training as a group. Ahead is just one thing that can also hang on a date, like longings: June 14, restart of everything for the rojiblancos, Athletic-Atlético, 28th day of the League.
There are times that come full of first times. And this will be it. The return of soccer in Spain. The marathon of games that comes to complete the eleven days of League that are missing. With this in mind, the red and white squad woke up this morning at Cerro to meet for the first time. There is no longer a group of alleged holders, commanded by Simeone, nor a group of alleged substitutes, they are all together. With 13 days ahead to think about San Mamés. And El Sadar.
João, on the grass
Intensity and ball returned to be the protagonists of the red and white session of a Cholo who has three casualties, those of Vrsaljko (arthroscopy), Correa (muscle injury) and João Félix (mild knee ligament sprain), the last one is safely down in Bilbao due to suspension. A João Félix who was one of the good news of the session, since he exercised on the grass a week after being diagnosed with the injury. The Portuguese advances very well in his recovery and, although he remained on the sidelines, he has already worked on the Cerro del Espino grass.
