Prep Begins For Dortmund & Yet Another Contract Extension

24 Sep

After yesterday’s victory (due to a brace by The Onion), the team got right back to work in preparation for meeting Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Training

The starters from the match yesterday trained at a lower intensity. Under-19s keeper Moha joined the session.  (Video) Keylor, Sergio, The Baby, Dani Carvajal and Isco trained indoors.  Of our injured players, Benzema, Kovacic, Marcelo, Theo and Vallejo continued their recovery while Toni trained indoors. I’m not liking all these injuries one bit.

Contract Extension

Young Marcos Llorente was also given a contract extension until 2021. (Video) Real Madrid is in his blood. He is the fourth member of his family to play for the team: his father (Paco Llorente), his uncle (Ramón Moreno Grosso) and his great uncle, who is none other than Blanco legend and honorary president, Paco Gento. (Um, no pressure there, kid! ) He also did an interview after the contract signing. (And yes, if you know me, you know I am side eyeing the high water, no socks with a suit look. It’s a Euro-ugh for me.)
