AEL coach Dusan Kerkez used Andres Chavez for a quarter in the day before yesterday's friendly with Aris. Not so much to see his level of readiness, but more to put him slowly in the atmosphere and the way the team works.
The Argentine striker came to Cyprus overweight two and a half weeks ago. It was decided by the fitness coach that the special training program alone is not enough to be ready to play ball as soon as possible. He was sent to a nutritionist, who gave him a diet plan to help him “burn” the extra pounds.
As for Vassilis Papafotis, who suffered from an injury in the second half of last season, while he also underwent surgery to repair a problem in the adductor muscles at the end of May, he shows in training that he is finding his competitive identity.
