Lukaku just instagrammed the following;
with the caption:
"My last night of being lazy like this.. From 2morrow on my pre-season upcoming season will starts. I will train every single part of my body to be twice as good than last year.. Stronger, faster, bring more quality into my game just to be as deadly as the great masters of the game. It will be hard but when you work hard you will play hard.. Season 13/14 is the season when i stop playing like a boy and will play as a MAN!! #ambition"
Really encouraging to see things like this, contrasted to photos of Andy Carroll munching on schwarmas. It's a shame some of our players, Oscar particularly, are missing out on a proper off-season where they could have really worked on their strength/speed.
Its definitely interesting to think about the strength training side of the game, if Ronaldo can transform from;
then what is stopping the likes of Oscar, McEachran et al making similar transformations that would clearly improve their game.
Feel free to discuss our very own Kraken or indeed the strength and conditioning side of football and whether its under-looked.
