Huddersfield Town defender Harry Toffolo has been taking part in some unusual training this week as he eagerly awaits the return of the EFL.
The Town left-back filmed himself participating in some jogging yesterday as one of his children was strapped onto his back. Toffolo posted the video to Twitter with the caption ‘Can’t wait to get back to normal football training’, suggesting that the former Lincoln City man would prefer to be out on the training pitch rather than having to keep himself fit at home. He tweeted:

Like many other squads across the EFL, Huddersfield Town players have been told to stay at home until they are allowed to return to training, however, the return date has not yet been confirmed as the country waits to see the severity of the recent health crisis. The pandemic has seen fixtures in the EFL postponed until the 30th of April at the very earliest as the FA extended the original enforced break.

Toffolo’s eagerness to return to training epitomises his personality which held him in good stead at his former employers. The full-back was adored by the Lincoln City supporters before he ended up following Danny Cowley to Huddersfield in the January transfer window and Toffolo is well on his way to becoming a fan favourite at the John Smith’s Stadium too.
Since arriving in West Yorkshire, Toffolo has put in a handful of impressive individual performances with the Town defender even getting his name on the scoresheet in the away draw with Derby County. Following a spell in England’s third and fourth tiers, Toffolo has looked comfortable in making the step back up to the Championship under the guidance of Terriers boss Cowley.
Toffolo’s tweet pretty much sums up what he is like both on and off the pitch. His infectious personality saw him become a huge part of Lincoln City’s title winning side last season which saw him put in several influential performances from left-back. It is good to see him settling well into life at Huddersfield even though he is not allowed to be out on the training pitch.
His performances on the pitch have been very impressive but his previous work under the Cowley brothers will have gone a long way in helping him understand exactly what they want from him in their system. Toffolo will be eager to get himself back onto the training pitch to ensure that his side don’t suffer back-to-back relegations from the Premier League into League One.
