Those players who have not partaken in the traditional pre-season training camp are often of the same opinion when hit by fatigue mid-season: the training camp at Tignes is ideal pre-season preparation before a gruelling exercise which can count up to 60 matches.
Rafting, skiing and an ascension of the Iseran will be the high points of a training camp which will finish up with a friendly match against Nice, on the 11th of July in Albertville.
This afternoon, the OL squad, filled up by the return of the French internationals, Miralem Pjanic and some youth players from the reserve squad, left Lyon by bus to arrive, three hours later, in the same hotel as during previous seasons.
