It was the first training session of the week for Inter as they prepare for two league matches; Wednesday night at the Stadio Tardini against Parma and Sunday night at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in San Siro for the derby. Technical director Marco Branca and Luis Figo (pictured) were also present at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti.
As was scheduled after the match, Andrea Stramaccioni divided the team into several groups. The first group, consisting of the Nerazzurri players who saw the most action against Cesena, underwent a light workout. The second group worked out on the pitch for approximately 60 minutes and consisted of the other available Inter players, including Julio Cesar, Walter Samuel and Javier Zanetti along with the youngsters who were added to the session: goalkeeper Raffaele Di Gennaro, full-back Ibrahima Mbaye, midfielder Joseph Alfred Duncan and forward Marko Livaja. There were also personalised sessions aimed at competitive recovery for Luc Castaignos (who also did part of his work on the pitch) and Cristian Chivu.
