Chelsea staff believe that pre-season training sessions have been quite light on running so far. According to well-known journalist Matt Law.
Chelsea personnel believe Mauricio Pochettino has been “quite easy” on the players’ running during the first few of weeks of pre-season, according to a report yesterday on the Law.
The Blues stars, who are presently practicing at Cobham in two groups, will shortly depart for the United States to begin pre-season with five friendly games. Pochettino’s legendary running methods are likely to swing into high gear then.
The Law has provided insight into Chelsea’s approach to player fitness thus far:
“I was told that the staff themselves feel like they’re going to go quite easy on the running,” he said on the London Is Blue podcast.
“From what I understand, they’ve been quite cautious with them thus far due to their injury histories.”
We believe the players have a lot more to look forward to as the pre-season begins in the United States.
However, Pochettino’s famous Gacon test was previously completed by Chelsea’s team earlier this week, with Blues left-back Ben Chilwell emerging as one of the strongest performers.
