    ALAJUELA, Costa Rica – Costa Rica’s Alajuelense announced Wednesday that after a month-long break, the senior squad will report for preseason training on June 10 ahead of the 2014 Invierno campaign.  The players will first undergo medical exams, before returning to physical work.

    Additionally, it is anticipated that within the coming days opponents for what is hoped to be a three-match tour of Mexico will be revealed.

    The last six months were busy ones for the Manudos, who advanced to the semifinals of the 2013/14 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) before being eliminated by eventual runner-up Toluca.  They also progressed to the Verano final, falling narrowly to rival Saprissa 1-0 on aggregate in the two-legged final.

    As a result of winning the 2013 Invierno title, Alajuelense – a two-time CONCACAF club champion – qualified for a fifth CCL appearance and will face holder Cruz Azul and Panama’s Chorrillo FC.
