Antonio Conte to give players day off on Ferragosto holiday? Nope, double training session as usual
It was an Emperor, Augustus, over two thousand years ago who instituted the feast of Ferragosto. The last Emperor seen in the areas of Appiano, on the other hand, was named Adriano who had Lukaku like power but he also tended personal holidays and festivities.
At this Inter, Adriano, in all probability, would have been identified as “out of project” because Antonio Conte and his work culture do not seem compatible with the Brazilian’s lifestyle. In short, no party on Ferragosto (Thursday) but instead, everyone is on the pitch for a double session. There will not be trips, no breaks as the team continues to prepare for the August 26th matchup against Lecce at the San Siro.
Like yesterday, perhaps even more so, it will be a Ferragosto of working, running, sweating and tactical training: the new season is approaching and this is the last week to put more gasoline in those legs because in just a few days, at least 50 thousand fans will greet the team at the Meazza.
