The Atlético de Madrid completed the last double session of the week on Wednesday before taking on the Numantia in the first friendly of the summer (Friday, 7 pm, Burgo de Osma). This Thursday there will only be one training session, in the morning, but Cholo is already leaving touches of what may be the first eleven of the preseason.
An alignment that will be totally conditioned by the numerous casualties that the technician has (in addition to the injured Philip Y Joao Felix, of the internationals who are still on vacation after playing the Eurocup or America’s Cup). Very few first team players are available to Simeone, who will have to use homegrown players to complete the eleven and the call.
Although the coach has not tried a training as such, he has rehearsed with certain players in certain exercises. And in attack, the couple this week has been formed by Sergio
Camel Y Giuliano Simeone. They both know each other from the subsidiary and get on well, which could lead Cholo to bet on them instead of on Saponjic, which after his assignment in Cádiz, still does not count for the Argentine.
Thus, Atlético’s first eleven of the summer, and at the expense of the goal, could be formed by Ricard, Frame, Handsome, Huntsman; Soriano, Kondogbia, Alberto Moreno, Saúl; Gualiano and Camel.
