Gotta do a little catching up. Yesterday was my last day in the office until the New Year (whooooo!) so it was a long one.
The team had their second session of the week yesterday. Enzo & Martin Odegaard joined the first team for the session. Pepe worked alone. Fabio, Sergio, Mateo and Lucas stayed indoors while G-Money continued his recovery. (Video)
Pepe & Fabio trained separately on the pitch. Lucas, Mateo & Sergio stayed indoors again and G-Money continued with his recovery. (Video)
Kovacic and Vazquez both picked up injuries at the Club World Cup. Mateo has been diagnosed with “a sprain to the anterior tibioperoneal ligament in his left ankle” and Lucas with a “grade 2 injury to his right soleus muscle.” Both players’ conditions will be monitored. Argh. I hate when the boys are broken.
Isco and Benz were named the November & December Mahou Five Star Players respectively. The award is voted for by fans on social media. (Video)
And we cleaned up at the Globe Soccer Awards as well winning Best Team, Best Player (Cristiano) and Best President (The ‘Peez). (Video)
Our first match of the new year is next Wednesday (Jan. 4) vs. Sevilla in the Copa Del Rey.
