Shakhtar in Switzerland: rest under workloads

Shakhtar’s training camp is gradually nearing its completion. The players are under severe workload. Tiredness has accumulated. Therefore, on July 8, Mircea Lucescu gave the team free time. After having a rest, the players had a theory session – they analysed yesterday's match with Sion. Then, the players proceeded to the evening training session.

The session involved a few groups training. Those players, who a day earlier played with the Swiss side for 70 minutes and more, were training for an hour. The rest were training for half an hour. The only exception was made for Alex Teixeira, who played almost the entire match with Sion. That is why today the midfielder of Shakhtar performed only the running work with the team. And then, he just watched the teammates training.

In addition, Bernard, who returned a few hours earlier, was also training in accordance with an individual plan. The Brazilian returned from holidays later because he needed time to recover after surgery.

We would like to remind you that on July 9 Shakhtar will face the Swiss side Basel in the Valais Cup. Kick-off - at 20:00, Ukrainian time. Follow the news on our website.
