GettyAntonio Conte is at war with Chelsea over his depature
And the Spanish duo were both involved as Chelsea FC underwent their first pre-season training session on Sunday.
Chelsea endured a rather frustrating season last term in the Premier League as they finished fifth on the table.
Numbers were diminished due to several players' involvement in Russian Federation, but those who didn't feature in Russian Federation were put through their paces with fitness and stretching exercises.
Conte is still now in charge, but Maurizio Sarri is expecting to be cleared to replace him as manager of Chelsea at the start of next week.
There are ten million reasons why he remains in West London, with Roman Abramovich unwilling to pay him off before appointing ex-Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri and as things stand Conte plans on showing up at Cobham every day and honouring his contract.
Sarri guided Napoli to a 2 place finish in the Serie A last season nearly winning the Italian title but the Partenopei replaced him with Carlo Ancelotti.
The large group of Blues players not involved in the World Cup, including Cesc Fabregas, David Luiz and Alvaro Morata, returned to the club's training base for fitness tests after an extended summer break while Conte made his first appearance since shortly after winning the FA Cup final in May.
Conte is also refusing to step down from his role in order to avoid giving up his own severance package should Chelsea sack him, with one year still remaining on his contract.
Chelsea's transfer business has been stalled, with the transfer window for Premier League clubs now being set at August 9, giving them four more weeks to bolster their squad.
