CSKA begins 2014 training in Spain

Yekaterinburg's CSKA soccer team--owned in part by Uzbek businessman Iskander Makhmudov--began its 2014 training session on Tuesday at the Real Club De Gold Campoamour training complex in Spain.

The players spent the day warming up before proceeding onto a series of ball exercises and treadmill work.

"CSKA returned after the holidays in good condition, without excess weight and other significant problems," CSKA Head Coach Leonid Slutsky said. "In order to start work on full-fledged gaming activities and tactics, the [players] were in acceptable physical condition."

CSKA teammates Kiril Nababkin, Alexander Cauna and Mario Fernandez were reportedly fully recovered following injuries sustained last year.
