It seems a minor signing, but it is not. Real Madrid has announced a change in their physical field. Pintus will no longer be responsible for the physical work of the players and the club has signed the French Gregory Dupont, the physical trainer who led France to win the world championship and who had worked at Lille. "Real Madrid CF announces the addition of Grégory Dupont to the coaching staff of the first football team as head of the physical preparation. Dupont replaces Antonio Pintus, to whom Real Madrid thanks him for the exemplary work and his commitment during all These seasons, and wish you good luck in your new stage at FC Internazionale Milano, "the white team said in the statement.
The mission of Dupont will be to get white players to endure the tough season that awaited them and arrive fine at the decisive moments of the season, back in spring. At Real Madrid, when they analyzed the main reasons that the last season was far below what was expected, they reached two conclusions.
The first is that many players needed psychic rest after the last seasons of so much stress. It was impossible to continue like this.
And second, that the physical preparation was not adequate at the beginning of the season because many players were punished from the World Cup and could not work with them. That forced to do another kind of preparation and many came away from their best formto.
This year's plan is that they are almost all from the beginning: they will miss the Brazilians who are in the Copa America and the signing that is missing. But Zidane will work with the group of players from the first minute, both tactically and physically. The challenge of Dupont begins now.
