The Real Sociedad squad will exercise two days at the Reale Arena in the first week of training with the entire squad in full in a single group, like the old-fashioned way, before the global coronavirus pandemic, after Health will authorize LaLiga normal sessions from next week and that the league entity has sent to the offices of Anoeta authorization to finally start normal work.
This first week of normal training will be very demanding, because Imanol Alguacil has arranged six sessions in seven days, all of them in the morning: very early, from 9.30 in the morning. But as we reported on Saturday, the intention of the coaching staff is to continue exercising as until now in Zubieta, but alternating with work sessions at the Reale Arena, to get used to playing at home without an audience in the stands. This idea has been visualized in the work plan that has been made public by the Real for this week, in which two sessions are scheduled in the Donostia team stadium, where he will play six of the eleven games he has left to finish the season, all of them behind closed doors.
The idea is that the players can adapt to play at home but in special conditions, without the encouragement of their fans in the stands, as if they were in training. La Real has had the key encouragement of their fans this year at the Reale Arena and the fear that this will take its toll is great. So they have the intention to organize matches across the field from eleven against eleven. It is necessary to adapt as soon as possible to the new reality of football for these last days of the league.
