Michael concluding the campaign in Germany with his match this afternoon. Just give me your opinion on how it turned out well. It was a reward for the boys because they worked very hard this week, covering more than 40 km in the afternoon football sessions. It's been a fantastic week, we got to a really secluded place in Germany and really enjoyed it, the staff and players mixed, we've got some new pit players we wanted to integrate and some new ideas so it was nice to end the Bye Week with a clean sheet game again, so now there are two clean sheets and two goals.
Abdullah showed his quality and he has shown it all week. Sam Lamers also in the first half, so we're not really happy. We have come out without injuries. and many players look strong and fit, yes, and for the team, how important are those minutes on the field at this stage, given the number of players who have come on, yes, and today we are playing with very tired legs? You know, as I say, over 40km this week we've put into his legs in terms of football sessions predominantly 85 work, but then one afternoon we ran hard in the heat here so you can see there's some legs today tired and communication. and the cohesion of the group when you get tired it lengthens a little but no, I'm happy I think that at the end of the week just to have a match we know that we have played two friendlies behind closed doors if you want outside of any of the public and that is to allow Let the team adapt to the new ideas, but the next two weeks we will have some fantastic games against very high level opponents that will test us and I am looking forward to seeing the good work. that we have implemented now in those games, yes, and in the stage of the police that I knew and the coaching staff team going forward and really shaping the rest of the preseason, we are just looking to make people's legs look stronger to the work we have done, we are looking for small relationships within the team, we are looking for people to leave our scoreboard for the season, if you look, two left backs are really competing to score, competing in the competition in the final.
The third one is really strong so it's nice and when we get home from here Nico Ruskin will join the group. Tom Lawrence too. Connor Golson is not a million miles away, so competition for places is very strong. I must say that I think the young people have done it. very well this week and I'm delighted with them and they've shown that they want to be in the group, which is really important. They are showing a lot of personality, of course they want to play for the Rangers, but do they have the Personality to play. Do you have the physical shape?
Do you have the mental strength to play? They've all performed well this week, so I'm delighted with them too.
