Marcelo Lippi had just quit as China coach and I, who was part of his team, were back in Italy when Donadoni called me: he accepted the Shenzen seat and asked if I wanted to stay again. A year in China to make it He understands what football was like there. And in Shenzen I met Giovanni, who was Donadoni’s athletic coach.”

Keep working on it, trying to master and improve it. He also has a master’s degree at Bocconi and has given two lectures at Coverciano to explain it. Juventus loved him so much that the club decided to bring him to Turin.”

About how this program works:

“There are parameters regarding weight, height, physique, leg strength, musculature, running ability, aerobics, acceleration and deceleration that are monitored with each exercise. Each player has a customized program that the role affects as well: the first tests that determine the starting point and, based on the player’s characteristics, are performed, The performance is determined and by it the exercises are determined to get there In relation to the technical-tactical work of the coach: depending on the needs, the length of the exercises, execution times and recovery times are determined. And I must say that in Shenzen 90-95% of the players hit the goal Andreini was really good“.

dry”.

On the unseen fruits of Andreini’s work at Juventus:

“Give it time. Knowing him, he would not have come to Turin to impose his methods: he is a smart person, and he will approach the staff humbly, trying to understand and cooperate.

About what Libby said:

“That there are players who need to play even if they are not at the top from a physical point of view because they give something more mentally. He always wore someone like Zidane. The physical parameters are important, but the combination of components is also important.”

At Juventus at the moment:

“First he must find his identity, and then he will find his physical condition as well. It is an essential aspect given the intensity of modern football. The two sides must be looked at together.”
