ALBUFEIRA – Clouds over Albufeira on Roma’s fourth day of training. The wind brought a disturbance to the Algarve town and the temperature dropped a few degrees from yesterday’s 24 degrees. It’s gonna be a workout this morning, cooler and probably a little rainy. The team left the resort at 10:00 with the Giallorossi coach. Mourinho and the staff never travel with the players but anticipate the prtenza of half an hour taking a van made available by the structure.
All ready for training, the coach on the eve of the match against Casa Pia, fifth in the Portuguese championship standings, wants maximum commitment from his team after the embarrassment against Cadiz. Even the Portuguese team is ahead in the preparation, but the Special One does not want alibi especially in the attitude that the players will have to put on the field. It will be like this again today: Roma have set up a session behind closed doors, Mourinho will try some new tactics today to study new moves ahead of the resumption of the championship. Wijnaldum, Tahirovic and Darboe continue their individual recovery, as well as Belotti who yesterday did aerobic work at the time, while the rest of the team trained between small games and athletic work.
Intense training to improve physical condition but also to work on the tactical part. Tomorrow the coach will give the starters not more 45 minutes but 60, increasing from partitsa to match the time on the field to improve the condition. This afternoon the team will watch the final of the World Cup between France and Argentina. The cheering will be all for Paulo Dybala that the teammates hope can enter and play a piece of the race. Even the technician and staff will watch the game: Mou sent a message to Joya to give her good luck. With the hope that everything can go well, especially physically.
