The Al-Sadd first team continued to prepare for the new 2021-22 season, training intensely at the overseas preseason camp in Barcelona.
The squad worked over two periods on Thursday. In the morning, they worked on exercises to strengthen muscles and improve reflexes. Later, the evening session started with warmup drills and light running, before the players moved on to tactical training.
The tactical training included working on movement and quick play amidst pressure in small areas. The players were then divided into groups to play out a practice mini-game, in which the focus was on quick transitions from defence to attack, and applying pressure in both directions.
