Real Madrid benefits from Pintus’s magic

On the summer's US tour, only Dani Carvajal caused the crowd a scare.

The Pintus approach is effective. The fitness coach for Real Madrid has a lot on his plate. The club’s right-hand man subjects the players to a demanding preseason schedule. After a practice in Los Angeles, Luka Modric admitted as much, saying, “We are running with Pintus a lot, and it is really extremely hard. But in the end, it’s crucial to play correctly throughout the remainder of the season. Time will tell how the squad will perform in January, but as of right now, on August 10, only a few days before the European Super Cup, the club has no injuries to disclose. 


There has only been one little fear this summer: Dani Carvajal. On July 22, the right-back sustained an ankle strain, forcing him to depart UCLA’s training camp. However, examinations revealed that it was only a sprain. After taking a break, the team was ready to meet Juventus in their last friendly. In recent years, ankles have led Madrid down the path of animosity; players like Eden Hazard and Dani Ceballos in the Tokyo Olympics are examples of players who, via force, only made their problems worse. Carvajal concentrated on the Super Cup and is prepared. He’s been working out all week. 

Madrid at maximum capacity


Without any issues, the remainder of the crew has been working this month. Pintus is finishing his training sessions with a lot of hard labor, thus Ancelotti’s team is adapting to his expectations. There will be more ball and less sprints as 10 August draws closer. The Italian coach is in complete charge.

Madrid’s injured players


Real Madrid sustained 62 injuries in the previous season. Only 20 of the 62 lived longer than 20 days. The three players that remained on the sidelines the longest were Fede Valverde, David Alaba, and Karim Benzema. Due to a microtear in his biceps femoris, the forward was wrapped in cotton wool for little over three weeks. In the instance of the Halcón, he injured his left lateral ligament after falling awkwardly while leaping with Gerard Piqué during the Clásico at Camp Nou (32 days out). Alaba was the most recent; he missed the second leg at the Bernabéu due to an adductor injury sustained at the Etihad. There are only three “serious” episodes every season.
