El Pulpo is officially in the building.

Fresh off signing a new contact that will keep him in purple through 2024, star goalkeeper Pedro Gallese joined his Orlando City teammates Friday for his first on-field workout of preseason training at Orlando Health Training Ground at Osceola Heritage Park.

Gallese, one of the league's top netminders who earned MLS Save of the Year honors in 2022 for his full-stretch, world-class denial of Dom Dwyer during a 1-1 draw with rival Atlanta United on July 17, shared a message to fans on his official Twitter account after the session:

"I'm back."

Here's a look at the five best shots of Gallese in action from club photographer Mark Thor:
