Tactics and physical condition
Răzvan Lucescu is trying to combine the ideal performance with the best possible physical condition.
Wednesday’s training session focused on tactics through targeted drills and physical condition. The Romanian coach knows best than anyone that his side must be impeccably prepared and ready to withstand high pressure situations in order to achieve their aims.
Djalma Campos completed his personalized program and is expected to return to full training on Thursday. Aleksandar Prijović went through warm-up alongside his team-mates and then followed his own program. Achilleas Pouggouras and Ergys Kaçe trained on their own out of precaution, as they complained of pains in the quadriceps and the Achilles tendon respectively.
As for Dorian Lévêque , he underwent surgery in France to remove scarred tissue from his quadriceps, the physicians believing it was the source of his recurrent pains in the specific area. PAOK’s medical staff are in contact with the player and the surgeon in order to determine the recovery plan.
