Training For Juve & Visiting Brothers

9 Apr

While the Derbi may not have turned out as we wished, a draw is better the a loss. We don’t have time to dwell on it because we have the Champions League second leg vs. Juventus on Wednesday. 


Yesterday’s starters trained at a lower intensity. Lucas Vázquez stayed indoors, Vallejo ran alone on the pitch and Nacho continued his recovery. Zizou called up Miguel Baeza from the U19s for the session. (Video)

The team was visited by brothers Isaija and Jeremija Pantic, with their dad Zeljko from Serbia. You may remember the brothers from their viral video reacting to Sergio’s La Decima header. They were all of us that day! Sadly, younger brother Isaija is battling a brain tumor and has been getting treatment in the United States. RM sent him a signed jersey while he was in the hospital and invited the family to visit on their way home. They went to training, met the players and got to see the Derbi. Here’s a sweet video of them with the players.

Wishing Isaija all the best in his recovery.

– Lozil
