Intense and exhausting week for Deportivo; the team completed the first week in Guitiriz and played the first friendly game. Manuel Pablo is the first injured player of the season.

Deportivo completed the first half of the stage in Guitiriz; the week was exhausting as the team trained twice in each day. The first sessions were taking place at Abegondo and involved to work in tactical aspects, while the second sessions were taking place mainly in the golf course of hotel Guitiriz and meant a very demanding physical training.

On Monday the team made several tactical movements with the ball in Abegondo, while in the afternoon they had to run six kilometers at Guitiriz. On Tuesday the team trained combinations and transitions defence-offense at Abegondo, while in the afternoon the team had a resilience training that lasted one hour.

For Wednesday the tactical training was focused in holding the ball possession and the team played games with seven players in each team, in the afternoon the session was intense in Guitiriz with several physical exercises. On Thursday the tactical training meant to divide the squad in offense and defence, while the physical training meant a new long and hard session at Guitiriz.

Friday was different as the team trained the set-pieces in Abegondo and in the afternoon played the first friendly game against SD Silva. Deportivo won the game (3-0) with three academy players scoring the goals (Cardoso, Dani Iglesias and Róber Suárez).

For Saturday there was only one training session, it took place at Guitiriz and it was a relaxation session with the players spending the morning in the pool. The team is resting on Sunday. The routine of the past week, with the team completing two trainings per day, will continue until Friday, day in which the stage in Guitiriz will end. On Wednesday the team will play the second friendly of the pre-season: Vs. Racing de Ferrol (A Malata, 20h30 CET)

As there were no signings during the week, the same 25 players that began the stage in Guitiriz continue working with the first team. Coach Víctor Sánchez admitted that some players are already dealing with some issues, though nothing important. That’s the case of Juan Dominguez, who didn’t end Friday’s session due to a back problem, though later the midfielder played against Silva SD. In the case of Laure, a muscle problem prevented to see him playing in the game.

But there’s already a serious injury case affecting the team: Manuel Pablo. He suffered a hamstring strain injury on last season and during the stage in Guitiriz he suffered a relapse. Now the doctors will have him training apart for a month, which means that the Canarian veteran won’t play in any of the friendly games in the pre-season.
