Shakhtar in the Netherlands: focus on recovery

Thursday, June 23, 2016



The Pitmen’s morning session on June 23 was held in a less intense mode

On the day following the match against KIFA Pro Team, the coaching staff did not load the team with strenuous exercises. The players focused on rehabilitation procedures: stretching, swimming pool and massage. Taison, Marlos and Facundo Ferreyra trained individually. Vasyl Kobin continues exercising in line with his individual programme.

- The workload increases daily, - said the goalkeeper of Shakhtar Bohdan Sarnavskyi. - New coach, new work specifics. Antonio Ferreira wants us to use our feet more, without losing the ball. This is the main requirement today. Also, another objective is keeping a clean sheet in every game. It’s great that we scored many goals yesterday, without conceding one. Generally, the training camp goes very well. Excellent conditions, clean air. What else would one need for quality training?

Lunch and rest are the next points on the Pitmen’s schedule. The evening session is scheduled for 18:00 on the pitch of the Sportvereniging SV De Lutte sports complex, where Shakhtar won their first friendly of the season yesterday.
