Great effort from players - Andre
Andre Villas-Boas was pleased with the players' efforts after our first day of training in Los Angeles.
After the long flight from London on Saturday, the squad had two sessions at the Home Depot Center on Sunday as we prepare for Tuesday night’s friendly against LA Galaxy (7.30pm local time, 3.30am, July 25 UK).
“It's always a difficult first session after the long trip, most of the players are still getting used to the new time zone, most of them woke up early, but it was a great effort,” reported Andre after the first session.
“We're continuing to build on what we've been working on from the start and to improve small bits and pieces, and putting the team together.
“We've come to America and the level of difficulty increases in terms of the opponents and our objective, which to be ready for Newcastle. We’re building physically and tactically to be ready for that game.”
We travel to Newcastle for our 2012-13 Premier League opener on August 18.
Here’s our friendly schedule in the US:
LA Galaxy v Spurs – Tuesday, July 24, 7.30pm local time (July 25, 3.30am UK time)
