The team is preparing for 2011 in La Manga in Spain. Thursday, the Mauves play against PSV at 6pm. One day later, a friendly against Murcia follows (at 4:30pm). Meanwhile, some players also got injured.
Kanu sprained his ankle on training and will have to follow an individual programme for a while. Coach Jacobs is suffering from the flu, forcing assistant coach Besnik Hasi to lead the trainings.
Matias Suarez arrived several days later than planned. The striker was sick and lost 3kg from dehydratation and diarrhoea. He'll rejoin the group soon.
Newcomers Abdoulaye Seck and Veselinovic are integrating well into the group. They both entertained the team by singing songs.
More good news came from Wasilewski: he's again performing at the level from before his leg fracture. And also Lecjaks left a good impression: "I've quickly learnt from the mistakes I made", he said.
