Training Update: Galaxy prepare to take on the Red Bulls
After a couple of days off, the team returned to the training field this
afternoon for the first time since Saturday’s game against Real Madrid.
With Bruce Arena in New York for his induction to the National Soccer
Hall of Fame, Dave Sarachan and Cobi Jones ran the fast-paced, 90 minute
session. The pair led the team through the day’s training, stressing
ball possession and defending as a group while the players competed in a
series of short sided games.
With all of that happening on the field, there was also plenty happening
on the sidelines as a large group of children from the Palos Verdes
AYSO were in attendance, cheering on every goal or save.
Having had two days off before today’s session, the guys finished with
some fitness work in preparation for their next match against the New
York Red Bulls on Saturday in New Jersey. The club will hold their final
training session at The Home Depot Center tomorrow before departing for
the East Coast on Thursday, where they will meet up with the absent
quartet of Edson Buddle, Landon Donovan, Omar Gonzalez and Donovan
Ricketts, as well as Bruce Arena.
