There was a lively training session at La Turbie on Thursday morning, and the 'keepers in particular were really put through their paces. Or at least as many paces as they could manage, since they were attached to bungee ropes. "This work strengthens their buttock muscles and hamstrings and improves their explosiveness", explained coach André Amitrano.
The outfield players worked on a number of attacking combinations, with runs down the flanks and crosses. YFC looked particularly sharp in front of goal.
