Partizan squad starts the working day with a gym exercise under the guidance of physios Misa Filipovic and Aleksandar Tomic. We spoke to both of them on mid-season preps in general.
It`s a day two of Belek training camp. Can you compare it to Belgrade part of the mid-season preps?
“As friendlies and restart of the season are getting closer, we gradually change the training, from general process staged in Belgrade to more specific tasks here”.
Back home, lots of training sessions would start with outside or indoor gym. Here in Belek, first session started with such physical activity too.
“Gym exercise was more a general one, an introduction to what is going to follow on the pitch – gameplay over a small area of the pitch and finishing. Therefore, we are preparing for that training session and tomorrow`s friendly”.
We have number of Partizan youths here with us. How pleased you are with their physical abilities?
“So far, they are handling the load and I hope they`ll keep it that way”.
After 45 mins of gym, squad moved onto the pitch to work on various tasks – demanding passes, ball possession with quick passing between midfielders, one-on-one game and finishing with return pass.
Squad will train again at 6pm while Sunday is reserved for Universitatea Craiova 1948 friendly.
