60 days after the Trey Thompkins’ coronavirus test came back positive, Real Madrid returned to Valdebebas. Javier Tebas announced that LaLiga were eyeing the 12 June as the day they want football back in our lives and Zidane and the players now have a target to aim for. Dupont, Zidane’s fitness coach, has put together a preseason routine and Madrid are a work in progress. The first session post-coronavirus started at 10:00 on Monday morning but starting at 09:00, the players were arriving including Ramos, Kroos, Lucas Vázquez, Modric, Hazard, Casemiro, Bale, Carvajal, Nacho and Altube. Protocol only allows individual sessions to be carried out and without contact with anyone. The session lasted just one hour and was all physical work.
At 11, the second group started their training session. This group included: Mariano, Asensio, Rodrygo, Mendy and Valverde. They did some work with the ball after the first group had left the field and while they didn’t wear masks, the technical staff involved did.
