2019, day 1
On Wednesday, the Aiglons took part in their first training session of the year.
After a busy end to the year, the coaching staff didn’t organise a session for the first day of the calendar year. The first session of 2019 took place at 3pm on Wednesday at the training ground. In glorious sunshine, and in front of their fans, the Aiglons were put through their paces with various drills.
Benitez and Balotelli back on the pitches
Away from the squad, several players worked individually. Walter Benitez, who was given an additional couple of days rest, was back out for a warm-up session. The same went for Mario Balotelli, who was out running with Matt Cook (fitness coach). After suffering a sprained knee in mid-December, Allan Saint-Maximin was also out running.
Dante - who will be suspended for the Round of 64 of the Coupe de France at Toulouse (on Sunday at 5.15pm) - will return on Friday.
