Klagenfurt - Hypo Group Arena – 5pm
Behind closed doors
Leonardo Jardim requested no pictures be taken of the day’s second training session, which focused on some heavy-duty tactical work. To ensure some privacy, the Red & Whites switched to the Hypo Group Arena’s main pitch and held their fourth Austrian training session in the impressive 32,000 seater stadium.

Ricardo the star
It’s one of the hallmarks of the very best players. Since his arrival in Klagenfurt, Ricardo Carvalho has been one of the most in-demand members of the Monegasque delegation, inundated with requests for photos and autographs. And the Portuguese defender is always obliging. Before the day’s second training session, "Ricky" poses with players from the local club, SK Austria Klagenfurt.

Anthony Martial tweets again
As we reported on Sunday, Anthony Martial is gradually returning to fitness after going under the knife for a groin operation in May. And the French attacker is keener than ever to get back into the action.

Elderson stays cool...
After the morning training session, it’s back to the hotel for the mandatory cryo session. The 7°C ice bath doesn’t go down too well with a frozen Elderson, much to the amusement of his teammates.

It’s all about the game
The Red & Whites have been back in training for exactly one week, during which time they have had an introduction to the “Jardim approach”. And it’s all about the game, as evidenced once more by Monday morning’s session, which ended with an attack vs defence game.
