Real Madrid held its fourth and last training session of the week this Friday without the presence of the internationals summoned by their national teams to play the qualifying matches for the Qatar World Cup. Nor could Ancelotti count on Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Dani Ceballos, who trained outside the group inside the white club’s facilities.
Defenders Nacho, who no longer did specific work in the gym, and Ferland Mendy worked alone on the pitch. According to medical sources from the white team, the Spanish central defender and the French full-back are expected to reappear this September .
The session began with warm-up exercises, first in the gym and later on the grass. Later, the players completed rounds, practiced possession and played several games on a small field. Lastly, the whites performed attack and defense drills in sets of one against one and two against two.
Carlo Ancelotti will postpone until next week his work plan to prepare for the next league match next week against Celta de Vigo, which will mean the return of the public to the stands of the Santiago Bernabeu.
