Tommy spoke to #HTTV ahead of the Club’s pre-season friendly against FC Bologna and discussed how the intensity in training has increased during the camp in Austria.
Town’s Club Captain explained why he believes its beneficial to have the training camp so close to the new season, whilst going on to say how it’s helped bring the group even closer ahead of the new campaign.
Smith laughed about the cooling methods in the lake, explained how great it was to have the World Cup players back and revealed how the Austrian heat will benefit the lads’ match fitness.
The Terriers face Serie A side in their penultimate pre-season friendly and Tommy went in to detail about how playing these types of sides will help Town come the start of the season.
On Town’s first full day in Austria, Tommy commented:
“It’s been tough; it was an early start for the lads, we trained on the grass and then we were in the gym during the afternoon.
“But, ultimately, it’s pre-season and this is what we are here for; to have these types of days to get work into our legs.
“Pre-season is never easy - no matter how many times you have. It never gets an easier, but it’s all geared around the start of the season.
“Day by day the intensity grows. I think the closer we get to Chelsea it’ll keep going and that’s what we want.”
