19-year-old Gaspar Alonso starts his day driving to the Stadio L’Arcier’s training facility at 5:00 AM.

He starts jogging 10 kilometers around the main oval at about 6:00. He usually finishes the jog at around 7:00.

He then starts to do tackling and marking drills, weights training, and ball control drills with defense coaches for three hours.

He then takes a break and heads to the player’s lounge.

After lunch he heads straight to the video room to watch past matches and his training recordings and works with coaches to look for deficiencies in his game. 

At 2:00 He starts to train in the team’s special pool to do low impact training and improve muscle strength and stamina. 

At 4:00 he goes home. 

He does this at least 3 times a week except on match days and special holidays. 

“I work hard to make it to the starting eleven someday. I want to be strong and fast like (Edu) Iglesias. I pattern my game from his game. He teaches me regularly when he’s done training. When I train in the Campo Verde I often train together with César Agudo because we both want to improve a lot. Our goal is to man the central defense once our time has come. It’s really exciting when I think about it.” the 19-year-old said
