Championship club Middlesbrough were spotted dining at La Sala Banus last weekend during a winter training camp in Marbella.
Aitor Karanka and his 23-man squad opted for the celebrity hotspot La Sala, Puerto Banús for the team dinner. Head coach Karanka explained that Boro’s trip to Spain was more about team bonding than it was working on the training pitch.
“I was thinking of going to Spain because sometimes it’s difficult to work here when it’s raining or windy,” said Karanka. “I told the players when we arrived there that the trip was more than just working on the pitch. It was about being together in the hotel, to spend a few hours together. We’ve had a few changes last month and I think it was good for us.”
Middlesbrough was not the only football club that chose the restaurant for a night out during their winter training camp in Marbella. Swiss Football FC Basel visited La Sala in January.
