Cup preparations under way


Squad in groups. Individual sessions for Cordoba, Figo, Ibrahimovic, Orlandoni and Stankovic

APPIANO GENTILE - Preparations for the midweek Tim Cup semi-final return leg away to Lazio began this morning at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti.

Those who played most of yesterday's derby went through a warming down session in the gym and the swimming pool, while the rest of the squad underwent a full session involving warm-up exercises, possession, athletic and tactical drills, and a training match.

Primavera goalkeeper Vid Belec, defenders Ivan Fatic and Marco Filippini, midfielders Francesco Bolzoni and Daniele Pedrelli, and striker Luca Siligardi trained with the first team this morning.

Dejan Stankovic (20-minute aerobic workout on pitch), Ivan Ramiro Cordoba (injury rehab, running for first time since injury) and Paolo Orlandoni (strength building) trained separately, as did Luis Figo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who trained in the gym.

Olivier Dacourt and Walter Samuel rested today, while Maicon is on leave.
