Shakhtar in the Netherlands: without reducing the workload

Thursday, June 30, 2016



On the morning of June 30, the Donetsk team held another training session

Before going to the pitch, Miguel Cardoso, Igor Duljaj and Pedro Moreira gathered the players together in the gym. The team workout daily to strengthen the muscles and get stronger. Despite the fact that yesterday the Orange-Black team had a difficult match against Gent, Paulo Fonseca did not reduce the workload. The players had two hours of intense training, which included exercises for ball control, precision passing and tactical training. The morning session was accompanied by heavy rain, which stopped just at the end of the training session.

- Fatigue accumulates a bit, but we have just enough time to recover, - says Shakhtar striker Andrii Boriarchuk. - We train twice a day, plus games. The coaches intelligently distribute the workload: we train both physically and tactically. We have very good opponents at the training camp. At the moment, we are looking forward to the game against Vitesse. With each session, we increasingly better understand each other as well as the coaches’ requirements.

Totovytskyi, Taison and Bernard trained individually. They are recovering from minor injuries. The Pitmen’s evening session is scheduled for 18:00.
