Training camp in USA: Shakhtar to change location

On 22 January, the Pitmen performed intensive work.

The morning training session took place on the beach. Running on the sand, beach volleyball and ball control – the coaching staff put emphasis on these components of the training process. And in the afternoon the team took to the field.

- I feel that I am slowly getting into shape. But I would say that this is not the most important thing at this stage of preparation. It is more important to restore the old and gain new game combinations, that is, the team understanding. It’s easier to improve physical condition. Apparently, this is why at the current training camp we run less, but do much more work with the ball - says Shakhtar’s midfielder Vasyl Kobin. - I liked Florida Cup. Participation in it was useful for us in terms of image and in terms of quality, good friendlies.

We add that on January 23 immediately after the morning session the Pitmen will leave the sports complex IMG Academy to relocate to Fort Lauderdale, where they will hold the second half of the training camp in the United States. The Pitmen are scheduled to play four friendly matches.
