Prague – Coach Jindřich Trpišovský is experiencing extreme winter training with Slavia footballers. At the beginning of January, the people of Prague had 22 infected with coronavirus and at the last minute canceled their departure for the planned training camp in Portugal. The defending champion had the first proper training and the leader of the league table only on Monday, ie five days before Saturday’s opening match of the spring part with Olomouc. At present, Trpišovský still cannot use nine players.
“It’s an extreme with everything. We had 22 positives during the first three days of preparation. A really extraordinary situation, I haven’t experienced anything like that,” Trpišovský said on the club website.
He and his assistants had to quarantine. “We also lost both conditioners, there were only goalkeepers’ coaches at a couple of trainings. We dealt with a lot of things over the phone, through conference calls. But we’ve been with the team for a long time, .
Coronavirus affected different players differently. “Some had a light course, some were heavier, some were not sick, but were (after the holidays) on another continent. It was very difficult to reconcile everything, everyone managed different doses. Some people left no traces on others, others are 14 days out with respiratory problems. It will hit another for an even longer period of time, “said Trpišovský.
He is already tired of the coronavirus crisis. “Some boys have already suffered from the disease once and now they have it again, some people develop antibodies, some do not. Of course, everyone clung to the fact that when we get wet, time will be more normal, but it doesn’t have to be that way at all,” Trpišovský said.
“Some people are immune for three months after having covid and others don’t even have antibodies. Some people have had covid three weeks ago and still don’t have antibodies, so he may be sick again tomorrow. It’s an endless story and I don’t know how to get out of it,” added Trpišovský .
Players who were not positive spent the first week of training off the field. “The big advantage is that we’ve been together with the boys for a long time and the team has a great character, so there was no problem in distance training. In the initial week of training we couldn’t use the playground, we spent it on the oval or in the gym. days to go to the artist, “said the coach.
The team has only been preparing for the heated field in Strahov since Monday, and on Tuesday the team played a model match. The Slavists did not start any preparatory match. A duel with Olomouc awaits them on Saturday.
“There may be complications at the beginning, because we had our first proper training five or six days before the first match. For players who underwent covid or were in quarantine, it will be more difficult. For others, it may be an advantage that the day before They played Christmas, so the break wasn’t that long, “Trpišovský mused.
His team was strengthened in the winter by the Danish Alexander Bah with the Ukrainian Taras Kacharaba and some players returned from hosting. The staff is not closed yet. “We will add a goalie team. There will definitely be a move out, there are a lot of us and we need some boys to play. The transfer period ends on February 8, we will see how everything develops. We currently have nine people out of play, so we will release players gradually And, of course, it is also necessary to negotiate conditions with the clubs to which they would go, “added Trpišovský.
