The players took the pitch at 8:00 am and did several resistance exercises for an hour. Pellegrini's goal is to divide the strenous work the squad is carrying out to avoid injuries and too much strain. This is why the players were allowed to rest before their second session.

The players took the pitch at 11:00, where many fans were waiting to see them in action. Strengthening exercises and workouts to boost explosiveness took centre stage after a mild warm-up jog. The players also lifted weights and tackled several drills that focused on changes in pace.

Wesley Sneijder rejoined his team-mates after missing yesterday's session. The Dutchman has been having trouble all year due to the serious injury he suffered from during the previous preseason and the Medical Staff has determined he should do specific exercises to overcome these problems.

Diarra and Van Nistelrooy again did recovery workouts, while Miguel Palanca stayed in the small gym on the pitch recovering from the sprain on his external lateral ligament.
