Read a transcript beneath…

How a lot are the accidents at present within the squad attributable to the fast turnaround from final season and the shorter pre-season you had? Or is it simply dangerous luck? Have you had that dialogue?

It’s a mixture. Yeah, quite a lot of course [it has been discussed]. When you will have quite a lot of accidents, as a supervisor it’s important to ask first your self what went mistaken, stuff like this. Then you undergo it and it was actually unfortunate. It began with the 2 accidents, or three accidents, which the gamers introduced right here. Caoimh, I heard the Irish supervisor didn’t prefer it, or nevertheless you gave him the knowledge. However, for us it’s like this: he acquired injured at Ireland and whoever was chargeable for it on this second didn’t decide it up. Then when he arrived right here he was nonetheless injured with out having huge issues. In a brief break the boys don’t practice like loopy on this three-and-a-half weeks. Two weeks off, one week a little bit bit, then first time goalie coaching out till at the moment [Friday]. 

Similar [with] Diogo. Played [for Portugal], had one session with us, it occurred once more. That’s now actually unfortunate. Calvin Ramsay arrived with issues fairly early. The stress response for Curtis Jones – he’s not a child anymore however nonetheless younger, it may well occur. It’s actually unusual, no person is aware of precisely the place it’s coming from, however it may well occur. So, unfortunate. Oxlade with an affordable muscle injury. Thiago. Ibou in a sort out, getting in, unlucky-ish. It was the same state of affairs with Kostas, simply in coaching: regular problem, knee a little bit bit unusual, out. Bobby solely a little bit however sufficient for not being obtainable… and I forgot 100 per cent any individual. Naby unwell. If they aren’t obtainable it’s all the identical just about. Joel now. That was unusual as properly, the way it occurred. He didn’t really feel something in coaching, walked in and then stated, ‘There is something’ and then he’s out for 3 weeks, 4 weeks, no matter.
