Most of the squad were back at Finch Farm this morning, with the exception of those involved in the European Championships this summer, and Koeman says he is full of energy ahead of the new season.
He said, “I’m very much looking forward to getting down to work.
“I’m extremely full of energy after a long summer and the players have had a lot of holidays as well.
“That’s one of the reasons I decided to change the date for starting the pre-season because it was planned in for 7 July and we changed it to 4 July because I think the best pre-season is five or six weeks of planning.
“After a long holiday, the boys need to work and to get back fit to play football.”
