Phnom Penh៖ Say Piseth has underlined the importance of team training and insisted that the clubs need to be informed at least one month before the Metfone Cambodian League resumes.

The Metfone Cambodian League has been suspended due to the Covid-19 crisis, and team gathering was not allowed to fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.

Most of the players are doing individual training to maintain their energy as they are looking forward to the re-start of Cambodia’s top flight.

The National Police center-back, however, believes that individual training isn’t as effective as team training that can enhance the team tactic instructed by the coach.

The National Police captain told “To me, if our league resumes, we should be informed at least one month before the match-day.

“As you know, team gathering was not allowed for several weeks, and we need to have individual training. I think individual training is not so effective as team training. When we train together, it can improve our team understanding. We can know the team tactic and style of play that is instructed by our coach.

“It can affect our energy as we don’t have training as a team for a bit long, and energy is the most important thing in football. If you can’t maintain your energy, your form will drop as well. In addition, you need to be smart and able to think quickly, too.

“The club that have their own stadium can deal with the current situation better as I believe they will have schedule for regular trainings for their players. They can get benefit from their own stadium, so they can prepare their team well. When the league returns, they are ready.

“It’s an unforgettable experience as we never had a long break like this. We used to have no longer than a month break, but we could have some friendly matches during the league break. Now it’s a different experience. It’s a long break, and we don’t have any matches or team training at all.”
