Shakhtar's preparation for the new season is gaining momentum
"It is very hard. Compared to what it had been like before, everything is different," defender of Shakhtar Ivan Ordets shared his impressions after the first working week, "A lot of tactical learning. All training sessions are filmed, and the coach points out mistakes during theoretical classes. I feel that I become better and stronger every day. I think we need just a little more time to improve. Before training Fonseca tells us what we are going to do, and we go out onto the pitch, knowing what to do. The young guys training with us have some experience in the Ukrainian Premier League games, and they understand football. We all support each other and getting ready for Holland.
Shakhtar continues to train twice a day. Today's second session is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. The only player not training in the general group is Marcio Azevedo. Sunday is a day off for the players, and on Monday, June 20, the team will go to their first training camp in the Dutch town of De Lutte.
