World Cup obliges, the Standardmen, like all Pro League players, benefited from several days off after the last match of the first round, on Sunday November 13 against the Union (2-3). Ronny Deila and his staff had given their players two weeks off.
After spending several days under the sun in exotic destinations, the Rouches will meet again this Sunday afternoon at the training center for a recovery session. On Monday, Ronny Deila will also provide training in the morning. The people of Liège will then head to their Spanish base camp in Marbella on Tuesday morning. A training session could take place depending on the trip.
Three young people taken over, two friends on the program
Like every season, several young people will participate in the winter camp (advanced this season due to the Qatari World Cup). Even if SL16 FC will play a league match (against Lierse on Friday December 2), three young players from Joseph Laumann’s nucleus will make the trip with the A.
This is the median, Léandre Kuavita (18 years old and who has just extended his contract on the banks of the Meuse) who scored three goals and delivered an assist with SL16 FC, Thiago Paulo Da Silva (18 years old and who recently extended until 2024 with Standard), this left-back who impresses Ronny Deila, and finally Ilyes Ziani, the 19-year-old left winger on loan from the Union (author of five goals this season). This winter internship should allow Ronny Deila’s troops to strengthen ties and work more on automation. The Norwegian should recover Renaud Emond, injured for many weeks.
In Marbella, where they will stay until December 9, the people of Liège will play two friendly matches. The first will be held on Sunday December 4 at 4 p.m. against the Greeks of Olympiacos who are also training in the region.
The second match should be played on December 8, the day before departure, against the Spaniards of Girona, but this meeting has yet to be confirmed. Finally, returning to Belgium, the Rouches will face the French of Valenciennes on December 14 at their training center behind closed doors.
