Statements to MCFTV
“We couldn’t wait to get started, even though we’re not all together, but it’s a start. Training with the ball and doing more things related to playing matches was great”.
“I started with the goalkeeping coach to undergo individual training and then joined the team. We focused on attacking tactics, pressure and then played a mini-match”.
“From zero to 100. On the first day I moved to group training, so I didn’t really notice the change from individual training from the first week and not being able to have contact with the others. I’m very happy and eager for more”.
