According to the club’s official website, Milan focused on both physical readiness and tactics, saying:
The lads underwent an athletic work during the initial phase of the training session based on stretching and running using hurdles. Moreover, coach Gattuso split the group in two: one focused on tactics and the other, just the strikers, worked on specific drills related to their role.
Let’s hope everyone is ready to go for the final match of the season, as it appears as if fatigue has taken its toll on the players. Only one match left, and Milan need to win it to stay in contention for the Europa League next season.
