The Tottenham boss and his staff already have much of pre-season planned out. Pre-season is one Mauricio Pochettino's favourite times of the football calender for one simple reason.

The Tottenham Hotspur boss believes that the pre-season weeks are the most important of the campaign as it allows him to work with all of the players on the plans and philosophy for the coming season, as well as new systems, tactics and positional changes or tweaks for certain players.

I am so fed up with articles spun out of a single quote...with no real information.....just speculation. This article, however, is an interesting read.

I wonder "What are the training regimes players have to do on holiday?

The days of taking the summer off as a pro are long gone. Preseason back in the day was hell, lots of running and no ball for the first couple of days of training.

Most progressive clubs today understand that their players are an investment, their responsibility and year round athletes. They need to be monitored as such. Some clubs let a player have a week of personal time - no monitoring, no diet restrictions, total mental and physical break, etc.

After that they may require him to wear a heart rate monitor or GPS device which can share data with the fitness coach. They will have players cross train, do some running to maintain fitness and a week or two before they report they will be on individual programs.

I would assume that our World Cup players will have extended maintenance periods this summer, the likes of Son too.

Key is that the player comes back within his weight range, within his HR range and close enough to the targets required to be able to begin training at the required level.

I expect early pre-season/holiday to involve lots of feet up, mineral water, and rest. Throw the ICC ... sorry i mean blood the youngsters give them some experience. I dont mind arriving a little off the pace on the first game. Anything to avoid a shocking last third to the season. If we have lots of injuries, and tiredness come march then i'll know we havent learnt what we could of.
They wont get a rest next summer. So take it while they can get it.
