Friday (09.12) was a day devoted to tactics in Nea Mesimvria, with the coaching staff preparing a demanding program for the PAOK players which included drills, games and exercises.
Warm-up and rondo to get started and then… the reins were taken by Razvan Lucescu. The Romanian coach showed a lot of diffrent aspects to his players and they did some a practical application of his strategies, first through possession games and then through a match played with some specific instructions and objectives.
Jasmin Kurtic followed an individual fitness program, while Omar El Kaddouri felt some discomfort in his thigh and will undergo tests in the afternoon to determine the extent of the problem. Lefteris Lyratzis , Marios Tsaousis, and Douglas Augusto all worked alone out on the training pitches as they continued their gradual build-up to full fitness.
On Saturday (10.12) PAOK will train at 10:30 in Nea Mesimvria.
