Spanish Football The keys to Atletico Madrid’s return
Wednesday will see Atletico Madrid begin testing their players for COVID-19, as the club plans to return to training in the hope LaLiga Santander resumes in the near future.
After almost two months of hiatus due to the pandemic, clubs are ready to return to training under strict measures of control.
These regulations have been created by the central government and the National Sports Council (CSD), and they are as follows:
Six players per pitch:
Training will begin on either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, once the results of all the coronavirus tests have been confirmed.
Once it has been determined that there are no positive tests amongst the squad, they will return to daily training at the club’s facility.
When the players are on the pitch, the new regulations state there must only be a maximum of six players on one pitch at any given time.
Atletico’s facility has three natural grass pitches, and they also have artificial pitches to help accommodate every player in this scenario.
During this time period, there will also be no group training run by Los Rojiblancos.
No contact with Diego Simeone:
As coach, Simeone will not be able to work closely with his players once the club have restarted training sessions.
He will not be able to approach the six players that are spread across one pitch, and despite all being in the same facility, there will not be the usual conversations or close coaching from the Argentine.
Players will work one at a time:
Atletico Madrid’s players will not arrive as a group for training, as each individual player will be given a time slot in which to arrive.
Los Colchoneros will do this to ensure that players train separately from each other and that the facility can cope with the demand of having no more than six players on the pitch at one time.
Service personnel have also been reduced to a minimum in terms of security staff, doctors, physios and members of the club’s media department.
The entire mini pre-season will take place at the club’s training ground:
This return to training is seen as a miniature pre-season ahead of a return to competition, yet Los Rojiblancos will not be training at Los Angeles de San Rafael at all, which is where they normally spend pre-season.
The facilities at the club’s training ground will be utilised fully instead as it is more equipped to follow the guidelines set by the Spanish government.
Four youth players will be tested on Wednesday:
Whilst the main 24-man senior squad will be tested on Wednesday, the presence of four additional youth players will also be welcome by the club.
Rodrigo Riquelme, Sergio Camello, Alex Dos Santos and Manu Sanchez will be tested as they will also be expected to take part in training sessions once they return on either Friday or Saturday.
