Los integrantes de Chivas USA que no formaron parte del plantel que disputó el partido de Liga de Reservas este lunes contra el LA Galaxy se reportaron al Campo 6 del StubHub Center para dar inicio a sus labores de la semana en preparación para su duelo pactado para este domingo en casa del Seattle Sounders FC.

La docena de elementos, bajo el mando del Director Técnico José Luis Real, ingresó al campo a las 9 a.m. y comenzando su rutina con pases cortos entre compañeros para el inicio del calentamiento. Después, pasaron a realizar un ejercicio de cuatro contra ocho, con los cuatro atacantes entre dos líneas de cuatro con el objetivo de recuperar el balón dentro del área táctica.

La sesión en la cancha concluyó con un trote alrededor del campo y una tanda de estiramientos antes de que los jugadores se fueran al gimnasio para hacer trabajos de pesas y fortaleza.

Los Rojiblancos regresarán a sus labores futbolísticas el martes por la mañana en la misma cancha. 

*********************

Those Chivas USA players not participating in Monday’s Reserve League match against the LA Galaxy took to the pitch at 9 a.m. to begin their practice week ahead of their Western Conference clash on Sunday at Seattle Sounders FC.

The group consisted of approximately a dozen players and kicked off with ball distribution for warm-ups, with each member serving passes to their teammate at short distances. Afterwards the squad – under the instructions of Head Coach Jose Luis Real – broke out into a four-on-eight possession drill. With four attacking players in the middle, a four-man line in front and behind the attackers would keep possession of the ball inside a tactical box.

The session on the pitch concluded with a team jog around the field and stretching before the players headed to the gym to work on their strength training with weights.

The Goats will return to their work week on Tuesday morning at the StubHub Center’s Field 6.
