Newcastle United winger Christian Atsu has described the club’s mid-season tour in Spain as an “ideal preparation”.
The 27-years old believes the training program will have positive impact of the on the squad in the coming weeks’ actions
The Magpies flew out to Alicante for a five-day training camp in preparations for the rest of their EPL matches.
This is just as they did last season, when they won three games in a row after returning to the UK.
“It’s been a really hard week,” he said.
“We travelled straight after the Wolves game and we arrived in Spain very late, we trained the same day. Then Wednesday we trained twice, the same on Thursday, we had another session on Friday and then a game on Saturday, so it was a really hard week.”
“It was definitely ideal preparation for next week. All the focus has to be on the matches we have coming up. I believe with this game we’ve played against CSKA Moscow, and the hard work we have put in this week on the training ground, I think we have prepared well. The manager wanted us to be focused on the next games and putting things into practice, and that’s what we have done.”
