Shakhtar in Odesa: 48 hours before the match

Thursday, July 14, 2016



Shakhtar continue to prepare for the first match of the season. There are two days left before the Ukrainian Super Cup meeting with Dynamo

After having some rest in the morning, in the evening of July 14 the Pitmen held a training session. The players practised neutralising the pressure followed by launching attacks, alongside honing their set play skills. Vasyl Kobin and Facundo Ferreyra returned to the main group.

- I am glad that I’ve been back with the team training, - said Shakhtar goalkeeper Mykyta Shevchenko. - Due to injury I‘ve missed a week of training. Now I’m trying to catch up. Shakhtar have changed their playing style, with numerous new elements introduced into the training process. I hope we will cope with that all and have a great season. We’ve started analysing the games of Dynamo. Paulo Fonseca pointed out the strengths and weaknesses of the Kyiv side. The goalkeeping coach also suggested how to act in certain situations.

Tomorrow evening, Shakhtar will conduct a training session at Chornomorets stadium.
