Several hundred fans and a hefty thunderstorm welcomed the Borussia Dortmund team to their first day of their training camp in Bad Ragaz in Switzerland. When Thomas Tuchel led the pros onto the perfectly maintained pitch in the “Ri Au” stadium late in the afternoon, the sun was still shining.

However for a short while the Head Coach and his team had to take cover inside the stadium to avoid getting absolutely drenched. The main focus during the nearly two hour training session was to keep it very tight.

All in all there are 28 players in Bad Ragaz. Nuri Sahin is one of them and he will continue his rehabilitation programme to build up his strength. The pros will be in Switzerland until the 26.July to prepare for the 2015/16 season. By the way, the players use mountain bikes to get from the hotel to the training ground. (br)
