Shakhtar held their first training session in Spain
The second phase of the Pitmen’s winter training camp has kicked off. On the morning of February 2, Shakhtar held their first training session in Spain. It took place at the Pinatar Arena, which is already familiar to the Donetsk side. This stadium is part of a modern fitness centre, located in the area of San Pedro del Pinatar. The complex was opened three years ago. It has three football fields with natural grass, which regularly host matches of professional teams. Right there Shakhtar will have the encounters scheduled as part of the Spanish training camp.
- The second training camp is the most important stage of the mid-season work, during which we are to play four matches, - said the Shakhtar forward Facundo Ferreyra. – At the moment we are in great shape, gradually rediscovering our top form. Given that the first leg against Schalke takes place on February 18, we have to be ready for it one hundred percent. Before our head-to-head meeting, the Germans will have some competitive games, while we play only friendlies. But despite this, we will approach the encounter at the appropriate level! At the moment, we are fully focused on our preparation.
