Shakhtar in Germany: loads under control

Tuesday, July 4, 2017



After lunch and rest, the Miners held another training session in the German city of Marienfeld

Paulo Fonseca slightly reduced the load, decreasing the session duration. The Donetsk team had sessions of less-than-an-hour duration in the last few days, with intensity being not so high, indeed, compared to that at the beginning of the training camp. After the warm-up, the Orange-and-Blacks were expected to do a set of coordination exercises. Workouts on the pitch boiled down to performing keep-ball exercises.

Maksym Malyshev trains individually:

- I had some minor problems with my back, - says Shakhtar midfielder. – I had certain procedures performed yesterday, and I am feeling much better. Today I have only worked out at the fitness centre. I hope, I will return to the general group tomorrow. In general, the training camp is excellent, we train well, played three friendlies against strong teams, there are all the necessary conditions for preparation. We try to give our all during both the training sessions and matches.

The Ukrainian champions are going to have a training session scheduled for the morning, and after lunch, the Miners leave for the game against the 2nd Bundesliga representative Holstein Kiel.
