Huddersfield Town defender Mathias Zanka Jorgensen insists the four-day training camp was the perfect way to prepare for Tuesday’s Premier League meeting with Everton.
The Terriers will welcome the Toffees to the John Smith’s Stadium this week and a win could move them off the bottom of the table, depending on Fulham’s result against Brighton.
New Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert will lead his team out for the first time and he and he players have just returned from a training camp in Portugal.
Jorgensen insists the training went well and it also allowed the team to get to know their new manager.
He told the club’s official website: “Warm weather training is always a good thing and we’ve come back here, and the sun is shining; it was good to have extra time on the training pitch to get Jan’s ideas and philosophies under our skin.
“He has a different style of play to what we were used to, it’s a bit more attacking, focusing on attacking and scoring goals. That has been our problem this season, so it’s good to be working on that side of the game.
“I think the style is quite natural in the way a lot of us think about football, but we need to get on the same page and get his ideas under the skin.
“It’s going to take some time, but we are very committed and want to keep learning it as fast as we can.”
Huddersfield are 3.80 outsiders to beat Everton this week, the draw is 3.25, while Marco Silva’s troops are 2.10 to grab the victory.
