Shakhtar in the Netherlands: speed and reaction

Friday, June 24, 2016



On the morning of June 24, the Pitmen had another training session

Before taking to the pitch, the team have dedicated thirty minutes to warming up in the fitness room: the players did some exercises for stretching and improving agility. The training on the pitch was aimed at developing reaction in game situations. At the end of the session, Paulo Fonseca organised a half-pitch game.

- The coach makes us make decisions and work with the ball, almost without thinking, - said Shakhtar newcomer Oleh Danchenko. - Paulo Fonseca teaches us to move correctly, to see the field. Everything we practise in training, will benefit us, and we will look equally well in a game. Of course, I am very happy to be at Shakhtar. I think every player dreams about it. Currently, the most important thing for me is working and proving myself. My more experienced teammates help me and prompt me things. So everything is fine.

The evening session will be held on the pitch of the Sportvereniging SV De Lutte sports complex. They plan to broadcast live the start of the training session in Shakhtar’s official Facebook account. The training is scheduled for 18:00.
