|LA Galaxy vs Real Madrid 2011|
Jose Mourinho has all the players of the squad available after the recovering of Varane and Di Maria. In the previous training session to the match, Lass had to retire with discomfort, but it seems nothing serious and he will play, in principle, some minutes.
Mourinho does not expect much of the friendly except to verify that the players are taking the work of the preseason. The coach wants his players fresh in return for the afternoon break he gave to his players yesterday. A well-deserved break, after four days of work in Los Angeles with double session training each day. Given the workload, it was decided to reduce the pace of training and Moruinho suspended the afternoon session. The Galaxy are a good team and there was no question of arriving at the appointment without legs in good physical conditions.
Once again, the big draw at Real Madrid will be the reunion with David Beckham. He does not have many colleagues in the squad, only Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos, of the galactic stage that Florentino Perez reminded these days with nostalgia while was watching the white team's training at UCLA. A team that guaranteed titles, a game machine and above all a machine to make money, precisely during this time summer friendlies, where the presence of the English midfielder guaranteed good incomes.
Mourinho will use two teams to give minutes to all players, including youth players. Can not draw many conclusions, but some things are clear. For example, Sahin, who has played on the left-back in some trainings, is on the squad to plug holes in the tactical scheme waiting for a move. In the squad there is a group of players with more training pace and a friendly played against Benfica, while the international players will play today their preseason opener. Kaka will still have minutes. The Home Depot Center will not fill and yesterday there were still tickets.
