The São Paulo players started the pre-season this Tuesday, after the results of the exams were released. The schedule includes one training session in the morning and one in the afternoon.
Of the reinforcements, Jandrei, Rafinha and Alisson were at the training center and are free to start activities with the other teammates. Patrick will have to fulfill a period of isolation.
The club still has to confirm this early week the arrival of the attacking midfielder Nikão, Athletico’s highlight in the conquest of last year’s Sudamericana. The 29-year-old signed a contract at the end of last week.
