TSG training camp, leaving day – adeus e obrigado Portugal

After an intensive week of training in Portugal, TSG's sporting director is full of optimism ahead of the upcoming challenge of avoiding relegation. “We had some great conditions around the hotel grounds. That mostly applies to the training pitch, but it includes the catering provided as well”, said Andreas Müller, before summing up positively: “The team has taken a huge step forward; everyone has worked with concentration and commitment. We can only get out of the situation we're in if every individual plays their part and we work as a team, something I'm feeling positive about.”

The Algarve showed its good side yet again on the final day. The TSG first team had three different parts to their training under the blistering morning sunshine, consisting of a slalom course, 5 vs. 2 practice and work with medicine balls. During the session, Marco Kurz thanked all his players for their cooperation throughout an intensive week of training.

A difference of 20 degrees

After lunch, the players set off on their return trip to Germany where the squad will have one day to acclimatise themselves before returning to training on Tuesday. It's important to get used to the conditions quickly, with Kraichgau a whole 20 degrees colder than the Algarve.

Full concentration is now on 2013's league opener this coming Saturday (19th January, 15.30 CET), where Borussia Mönchengladbach will be the visitors inside the WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena
