The players trained for three consecutive days between Monday and Wednesday before returning to London as preparations continue for our trip to Southampton on Saturday at tea time.
“Like the last few years, it was a good experience for the togetherness in the group,” said club captain Hugo, speaking to the club website.”To see different things, to do different things together is so important. At the same time you stay together and that’s good too.
Hugo added: “It’s an opportunity to know the new players better who arrived last summer because you share 24 hours with them. Like the last few seasons it’s a very good experience and now we start again to work.”
The article adds that an eight-day gap between last Saturday’s match against Everton and this Sunday’s visit to St Mary’s, Hugo said the timing of the trip was perfect.
“I think it was a good time to switch off because we are lucky that the next game is on Sunday,” added the club captain. “At the same time we did some good work and that’s important. Now we will be back to our routine and we will prepare for the next game as well as possible like we normally do.”
