“You need to play the best teams to get a feel for how you’re getting on as a group and how everything is going with the different systems you play. But more importantly, when you play against the bigger teams, I think that really helps with your match fitness. So, it’s a positive for us that we’re playing some real top-quality sides.”

“When it comes to pre-season, that’s the start of the proper season for the manager. It’ll be good to be together as a group and if a few signings come in we’ll be ready for that and welcome them with open arms.”

"It will be good for the younger players who came on the tour last year and who will come again this year to get a feel for exactly what goes on - how the players prepare for games, exactly what they do, the meetings we have and things. It can be a vital time in their development. It just helps them get to know the lads and it allows them to see what you’re about on the pitch as well. That’s one of the most important things - they have to trust you on the pitch and have confidence in you. It’s an invaluable experience.”
