Tottenham defender, Toby Alderweireld has come out to urge opponents that his club is fit and raring to go after the coronavirus pandemic.
Toby recently came out to say that the pandemic did not reduce the intensity of the players in training at all.
According to him, the squad have prepared in the best way possible because no player saw the lockdown as an holiday.
He added that Tottenham is mentally and physically ready for EPL restart.
His words, “I think we have prepared ourselves in the best way possible,”
“People think because we were in lockdown, we were on some sort of holiday, but we weren’t.
“Friday we went in lockdown and Saturday and Sunday we were at home – but on Monday we were straight into zoom sessions and all of the equipment was sent to us at home for our muscles.
“We got the training we needed to keep our tone in the muscles. We had GPS for the running in the park – not easy running, tough running.
“So when we got back to training it was not like a holiday. And when we trained, we trained very hard. Sometimes it’s harder to train one-on-one than with the whole team. I think we are ready to compete.”
“You cannot compare [lockdown with pre-season]. We didn’t have a holiday, we just prepare and train by ourselves and we didn’t know when we were playing again,”
“Mentally and physically we had to be ready and we were absolutely ready at all time.
“The Premier League could have said that it could be two to three weeks but we knew we had to be ready.
“We just had to prepare ourselves physically and mentally for when the time was right to go back again.”
