APPIANO GENTILE – Preceded by a minute of silence in memory of Piermario
Morosini, the third weekly training session was held this morning at the Centro
Sportivo Angelo Moratti in La Pinetina ahead of the match against Fiorentina at
the Stadio Franchi. Also present were technical director Marco Branca, sporting
director Piero Ausilio, technical consultant Gianfranco Bedin with his ex
team-mate and scout Mario Corso, and vice managing director Stefano Filucchi.
The session, which lasted approximately 70 minutes, saw the group perform

Dejan Stankovic trained with their team-mates. Added to the first team for the
session were goalkeeper Raffaele Di Gennaro (’93), full-back Ibrahima Mbaye
(’94), midfielder Joseph Alfred Duncan (’93) and forward Marko Livaja (’93).
There were individual recovery sessions Luc Castaignos and Walter Samuel and an
