Shakhtar in Germany: morning session

Thursday, July 6, 2017



The Ukrainian champions’ pre-season preparation in Germany is coming to a close

The Miners have a few more training days in Marienfeld and a closing friendly game.

Today Paulo Fonseca organised the training as follows: the players who participated in the friendly vs Holstein, trained separately following a simplified programme. Their session lasted thirty minutes and involved a warm-up, a tennis-ball game and some stretching. The second group trained for an hour and a half. The focus was on running and playing exercises. At the end, they had a small-sided game across a half of the pitch.

Shakhtar's head coach has cancelled the evening session, giving the team more time for rest and recovery.
