Baggies set for warm weather training camp

Carlos Corberán warm weather training camp

Albion will travel to Spain for a warm weather training camp later this month as Carlos Corberán steps up preparations for the second half of the Sky Bet Championship season.

The Baggies boss will be returning to his homeland for a week-long trip on Sunday, November 27, with his squad operating from a base on the Costa Blanca.

And Corberán believes the trip will be of great benefit to the team as he looks to maximise time on the training pitch.

He said: “The training camp is important as it will allow us all to get to know each other even better – both professionally and personally.

“I want to accumulate as many minutes on the training pitch as we can. When we return from the World Cup break, we are going to face a very demanding schedule in terms of the games we are going to play.

“My priority for the next few weeks is to work with the team, and to spend time with them, to train rather than to play games.

“I do not normally travel to Spain in the summer because, for me, England is the best place in the world to be working at that time, and other places are too hot – but now is the opposite and there is benefit to us going somewhere with a warmer climate during the break.

“As well as normal physical work, we will be focusing on our tactical behaviours, to attack better and to defend better, too. I have been here for less than three weeks, and this trip will allow me to develop behaviours which we will need when we return.”
