Taking part in a Q&A on Sunderland’s official Twitter account, Black Cats striker Charlie Wyke has revealed how he and his team-mates are planning on keeping fit and sharp whilst the current period of self-isolation continues in the country.
It’s a tough period for all involved right now, with many having to be cooped up in order to ensure pressure isn’t built up on the health services.
Football, then, has had to take a back-seat mid-season and fans will be itching to see how their players are keeping sharp ahead of a potentially crucial few games once the campaign is resumed – providing it is.
For Sunderland, the challenge will be forcing their way into the top six with them just outside it at the moment, and Charlie Wyke has revealed how he and his players are looking to do that:
“The coaching staff have put together a plan for us.
“That changes from week to week.
“There’s a bit of running, a bit of gym work.
“Everything we do we have to track, so we all put it on an app, the coaching staff go through it and if they want a bit more from us, or we’re doing too much, they’ll let us know.”
Can you get full marks on this Sunderland quiz?
It seems as though the coaching staff at the club have a good grip on things at the moment and are managing to monitor what the players are getting up to in isolation.
It’s no substitute for seeing them day-to-day and working on things together on the training pitches, but it is better than nothing and modern technology seems to be helping out the players as well as the staff there.
