Despite hard work, Antonio Pintus is building good relationship with the players while Steven Zhang is approving Conte's work
Antonio Pintus has been working the players all summer long to whip them back into shape after months of vacation. That being said, the former Real Madrid conditioning coach seems to have built a good relationship with most of the players, alternating between making orders as Sergeant (nickname) to laughter and jokes.
Lots of sweating, lots of work, but the climate is positive, with Lukaku already at the center of the team: a gentle giant with gentle smile. Yesterday afternoon, there was also Steven Zhang (with Marotta and Zanetti) watching the training methods of the new coach. Training started with athletic exercises, then technical and finally was tactical portions. The president was very pleased as the overall vibe is positive, with fired up players who are ready for the new season.
