Pre-season with Jesus Perez...

Posted on 17 July 2015  - 16:15

Assistant Head Coach Jesus Perez continues to give us an insight into pre-season training as we build-up to the big kick-off at Manchester United in August 8.



The main group of players have now been back for two weeks and tomorrow represents two weeks of pre-season training work.

The full squad worked together on Thursday with the exception of Harry Kane and Tom Carroll, who returned yesterday and are in a different process at the moment.

We're very pleased with how things have gone so far and from Monday, the squad will work all together.

This week has been about increasing the minutes of tactical work, intensity and focusing on our positional game, increasing the tempo out of possession and obviously to keep improving our fitness levels.

The most important thing is to set out our principles, repeat them and improve them. Then, in the final days of pre-season, it will be time to get the final shape of the squad and the system of play.

What we've seen so far has been a willingness from the players in the way they have approached and applied themselves in every single training session.

We are positive and so far, the players have done everything that we have asked of them.
