spurs(((on!))) newsflash

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Fitness coach Kunle Odetoyinbo has little sympathy with the players in having to deal with the current extreme weather conditions.

He states, quite simply, that it always seems to be hot on the first day of the season so they should just get on with it and adapt.

"I've got no complaints!" he laughed. "The players should have no complaints either - all of their memories of day one of the season is of a very hot day. So they have to get used to competing in the heat.

"Of course, we try and make amends for it and give them all the support we can with fluid balance and all of those things but, it is part and parcel, you play football in this country and you deal with the cold and the other end of the scale."

Meanwhile, Kunle added that he is happy with the way the preparations have gone over the pre-season period.

"We've progressed well, it's always disappointing to get some injuries along the way but, as per normal, we put all the prevention strategies in that we can and hope to minimise them.

"We have done well on the preparation, but it means little if we don't win the first game - it is important to do well in that."
