Ismaily: It's important that we gained a victory

Friday, June 30, 2017



In the evening, the Orange-and-Blacks held just another training session on the turf of Hotel-Residence Klosterpforte

An hour-and-a-half session consisted of playing exercises with balls, which finished with a mini-tournament in the half of the pitch organized by Paulo Fonseca.

- We continue to work intensively and fruitfully, - says Shakhtar defender Ismaily. - We improve our physical form through both strength training and running work. Yesterday we had an opening test match as part of the training camp. We demonstrated a nice movement, and it's very important that we gained a victory.

- Paulo Fonseca was not satisfied with defensive performance...
- Yes, we made some mistakes that led to our conceding goals. We will analyse it and draw conclusions. Now we try to put into practice what we learn while training. Something doesn't always work out, but it's quite a normal process at the training camp.

- Upon what do you make emphasis at the training camp?
- First days saw us working mainly on regaining physical form. Now we devote more time to tactics and set up interplay between the teammates. Of course, it's not easy to train in such a rhythm twice a day, but we're already getting used to the loads.
