Leganés novel training session ahead of Real Madrid

There were plenty of smiles at Leganés training ahead of their clash with Real Madrid in LaLiga with a gym ball assault course being set up by new manager Luis Cembranos.

Leganés novel training session ahead of Real Madrid

Luis Cembranos is the new man in charge of Leganés for their trip across town to the Santiago Bernabéu on Wednesday night. The former Rayo B coach took over from Mauricio Pellegrino after a winless start to their season.

They lost seven and drew two of their first nine games with the final straw coming in a South Madrid Derby defeat to Getafe. Pellegrino, who felt as though it was time to leave, walked away before he was pushed. 

Cembranos oversaw Lega's first win of the season against Mallorca last weekend and now they face the intimidating task of travelling to play Real Madrid, who are fresh after the Clásico was postponed at the weekend.

Their training preparation is novel to say the least. Leganés' Twitter account posted this video of their assault course like training with gym balls being kicked in the players' direction. Cembranos probably did it partly for the fun and partly to increase his players' awareness heading into the cauldron that is the Bernabéu on Wednesday night in LaLiga.
