Llorente back in training

Fernando Llorente is included in Athletic Bilbao’s morning training session as usual, after yesterday’s early finish.

The striker’s workout with his teammates ended prematurely on Monday after a discussion with Coach Marcelo Bielsa.

Pictures show Bielsa pulling Llorente aside and giving him direction and criticism, to which the player responded with gestures of surprise.

It was alleged that the Argentine took exception to Llorente’s lack of dedication to the session and then expelled him from the remainder of it as punishment.

However, the club have looked to play down the incident with no official statements released and the Spain international is reported as back in action with the first team for training today.
