Emphasis on tactics
PAOK’s players are into the final stretch of their preparations for the Super League premiere, with their training schedule reaching its peak tempo ahead of the opener against Panetolikos (20.08, 21:45) at the Toumba stadium.
Wednesday (17.08) was a day for tactics. The coaching staff worked with the players on various details regarding the team’s attacking build-up play and on shutting down opposition attacks, while there was also some hands-on work, applying the theory aspect in a mini-friendly match at the end.
Rafa Soares trained normally, while Ivan Nasberg and Charis Tsingaras both trained individually, following their respective recovery programs. Giannis Michailidis continued his rehab program with some outdoor work on the practice pitches.
On Thursday (18.08) PAOK will train at 18:30 in Nea Mesimvria.
