Shakhtar in the Netherlands: 40 bicycles

Monday, July 4, 2016



On the morning of July 4, the Donetsk team had their first training session in Horst

The team stopped in a picturesque location. The hotel stands on the lake shore, surrounded by forest and park area. Training pitches are close to the hotel. The players and coaches go there riding the bicycles, which have been prepared (40 of them) by the administration of Park Hotel Horst specially before Shakhtar’s arrival.

- This is very cool – to go to the pitch by bike,  – Shakhtar player Dentinho shares his impressions. – We’ve never done it before. Moreover, it’s a beautiful and interesting place. There are things worth seeing. We continue to work a lot and hard. We get tired, but we know that we must stand it. Shakhtar have not won the league title for two seasons now, so now we need to fight for the championship more than ever before. The four games we played have shown that we basically understand what kind of performance aulo Fonseca wants to see.

The morning session lasted thirty minutes. Internationals joined the general group. Ismaily, Maksym Malyshev and Oleh Danchenko, who had got injured in the friendly against Vitesse, did not train. The goalkeeper Mykyta Shevchenko also recovers from a minor injury. Vasyl Kobin exercised individually. The evening session is scheduled for 6 pm.
