Accardi’s farewell after a lifetime in knitwear rosanero, the debut of the new team manager, two covid-positive players and coach Corini’s resolutions for the new year. A group with some absences between sales and loans but still without any new faces, and with a couple of injured players. These are the main elements that accompanied the return to work of Corini’s team, which met at the Giulio Onesti sports center of Coni in Rome. The team that worked yesterday afternoon will remain in retreat until Saturday morning and then return to Palermo to prepare for the away game in Perugia scheduled for January 14 at 2pm.
The team worked on the field: aerobic work and practice match for the group that had to do without the injured Buttaro and Stulac although the former could already return to Perugia while the Slovenian is still grappling with the thigh problem he accused in the pre-match Brescia. No field for the two covid positives who, by protocol, are in isolation although the new rules, decidedly less restrictive than in the past, allow you to return to the group after just 5 days if asymptomatic. And there is no longer even the obligation to do swabs repeatedly but only advice and recommendations from the FIGC.
Of the 27 players called up, the Rosanero coach was only able to count on 19 players plus the three goalkeepers and the three young players added to the first team. With Accardi (in Piacenza) who tactfully thanks and greets, there were no Devetak (official loan to Viterbo), Peretti (moved to Recanatese) and Doda about to marry (Imolese). And there wasn’t even Orihuela, the Uruguayan central defender arriving from Montevideo City Torque who, having completed the classic medical tests, will join his teammates in training camp.
And from the training camp, after the holiday break, the coach Corini spoke who above all underlined the harmony that reigns within the club where one works with great agreement of purpose, like in a family, comparing and supporting each other.
