Every day, except for Sundays, the team's activity is divided into three or four sets of exercises focusing on balance, stability and core strengthening. All training sessions, made available to players via video links, are overseen by physiotherapists, trainers, technical staff and by the coach Pioli. The Club continues all day-to-day activities through smart working and is ready to implement any changes based on the guidelines issued by the competent authorities for a second phase of the ongoing emergency. The Club continues to participate in follow-up meetings held by international and national sports authorities to share relevant updates concerning the emergency and developments of the pandemic.
After receiving permission to return to training on an individual basis, the team will only get back to work at the Milanello training centre after undergoing screening based on the sports medicine protocol which is currently under approval.
