Training camp: Lyon's (double) delegation arrives in Murcia
Winter has given way to a sunny change of scenery for Lyon. Bruno Genesio’s men and Reynald Pedros’ ladies have left the cold and bad weather for some sun in southern Spain. Shortly after one last rainy, icy training session, the Lyon delegation headed to the Saint-Exupéry Airport to fly to the south-east of Spain for a three-day training camp.

Therefore, two professional teams and their respective technical staffs have landed in Murcia. An unprecedented chance for Memphis and Shanice van de Sanden, two Dutch internationals, to share a moment before takeoff, and for Eugénie Le Sommer and Camille Abily, two fellow Bretons, to enjoy a trip to the Iberian sunshine. « It’s super nice to enjoy the men’s plane. It’s nice to travel together. »

Spain, the sun, the beach and the nearby sea... The holidays, however, will seem a distant memory for the players, who are taking part in demanding double daily sessions along with teammate Nabil Fakir. Work began shortly after landing in Murcia Monday night following a quick flight that lasted a little over an hour and a half. Both groups then separated and checked into their respective hotels, in Algorfa and Roldan, about sixty kilometers from each other. They will touch base again Thursday night in their return trip back home after three days of intense training.
