With the Derby della Lanterna looming on the horizon, Claudio Ranieri’s Sampdoria squad were back at the Centro Sportivo Gloriano Mugnaini on Thursday to continue preparing for the game.
The squad kicked things off with a warm-up and some fitness work on Pitch 1, after which the players were split up into two groups. Those involved for all or most of the cup win over Salernitana on Tuesday had a recovery session, while the rest of the squad got stuck into some practice games.
Antonio Candreva was tested with the main group for the initial part of the season, before dropping out to focus on his tailored programme. Manolo Gabbiadini continued to work on his recovery.
Samp will train again on Friday morning.
