Swans Swedish Trip A Success

Roberto Martinez has heralded the pre season trip to Sweden a resounding success. This comes after a convincing 5-2 win over Ostersunds FK earlier today.

The Squad had made the trip over to Sweden to open the Swedish clubs new 5000 all seater stadium the Jämtkraft Arena.

Whilst in Sweden Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez and the coaching staff took advantage of the exellent training facilities to improve the fitness of the Squad ahead of the coming season.

A few of the Squad had picked up slight injuries during the training camp. Both Kristian O'Leary and Jason Scotland has sustained a calf problems and Leon Britton also has problems with his hamstring.Kevin Amankwaah has a bruised toe and Alan Tate has sustained an ankle injury.

Those injuries are not thought to be serious.

Swansea City Manager Roberto Martinez on the official site:

' 'All our aims out here have been achieved.'

It's been a good team building and bonding exercise with all the new players gelling well with the rest of the squad.

By coming away, we got rid of all the distractions of home. We've been able to focus fully on our fitness work with three, sometimes four, sessions a day.

It's been hard for the boys in the high altitude because the body tires a lot quicker. But once the body gets a few days rest, they will feel the full benefits.

I can guarantee you it will be worth it because they'll feel a lot fitter for the tough season ahead.''



Martinez was also in bullish mood after the 5-2 win vs Ostersunds this afternoon.

He told the Official Site

''Everyone available had at least 45 minutes.

It was a good exercise and we showed plenty of quality. It was a big game for Ostersund and they gave everything. But we performed well and some of the goals we scored were fantastic. '



It seems like Roberto is happy with the progress of the Squad during the week away.Lets hope the benefits are felt from this training camp when the season kicks off.

The players must now work very hard to maintain the fitness levels they were able to reach at this training camp! It can only mean good things for the up and coming season!
