Football Edges Closer To A Return

Football Edges Closer To A Return

After 76 days without football in its founding city, its return has edged a step closer for both Sheffield clubs.

While it is now known that Wilder’s Blades will head to Villa Park to kick the Premier League season back off on June 17th, more importantly The Owls were back training at Middlewood Road on Monday.

Fans were given an inside view of training yesterday through the lens of Fernando Forestieri’s phone as he took control of the clubs official Instagram story, which proved to be a big success.

The players, all of whom look to be in great shape after the enforced break, are currently training in groups of four with staggered sessions throughout the day.

During these early sessions, there is no contact between players as they maintain social distancing, therefore Tony Strudwick Head of Sport Science and Medicine has had “No mercy” with the squad according to Atdhe Nuhiu, while Fernando has aptly labelled him “The Killer” due to his tough fitness methods.

The big Kosovan certainly caught the eye when he featured in Forestieri’s videos, looking extremely slender in comparison to his sizeable frame pre-lockdown, something Fernando mentioned in the clip.

Morgan Fox, who found himself at the top of the running charts alongside Jacob Murphy, also made his way into shot and expressed his hopes for a new contract for Steven Fletcher.

Fox himself will be hoping to earn himself an extension at Hillsborough after resurrecting his career in blue and white.

Without doubt the pair have been shining lights throughout the ups and downs of this campaign and the majority of supporters would jump at the chance of watching the duo again when fans flood back through the turnstiles, whenever that may be.

For now, we sit tight and eagerly wait; Garry Monk has said that phase three of the return to training is yet to be discussed, so a Championship return is unfortunately still some weeks away.
