Their training camp is near Poprad below the High Tatra Mountains, and so far they have been satisfied with the conditions and the services. They arrived without their Slovak centre-back, Lubomir Michalik, and manager Simon Grayson revealed that the Slovak player would probably be up for a transfer or loan in the coming weeks or months.
When asked about why they chose Slovakia, Grayson said: “We had several options but we opted for Slovakia due to the weather and the facilities. We like the fact that everything is virtually in one spot in Poprad, and we have been satisfied so far.”
Leeds United have been league champions three times and on the subject of training tactics, the manager noted: “You look at the World Cup, for instance, and teams are very versatile in what they need to do. The ones that were predictable went home. We know there’s stuff we need to do differently in the Championship in terms of what we did in League One. That’s what pre-season is about, working on different ideas and giving ourselves the best opportunities of coaching and playing staff to succeed.”
