Midfielder on pre-season training.

Kalvin Phillips can’t wait to get back to Thorp Arch on Monday for the first day of pre-season training.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side will meet up for the first time ahead of the 2019/20 campaign, with preparations set to get underway.

Speaking to leedsunited.com, the midfielder is expecting a tough few weeks, ahead of the first pre-season match against York City on Wednesday 10th July.

“The summer has been good, I’ve kept myself in shape and have been working hard and I’m just looking forward to the upcoming season coming now,” said Phillips.

“I’m very excited for Monday, the summer has been quite short, but I don’t mind that.

“As soon as I get back into football I am ready to go and I’m sure the rest of the lads will be as well.

“I’ve been in touch with most of the guys, speaking about holidays and a few of the injured lads who have been in at Thorp Arch and I’m really looking forward to seeing them all.

“Last pre-season was one of the toughest I’ve ever been part of and I don’t expect anything else this time around.

“The coaching staff and manager know how to get us into shape for the way we want to play and I’m sure the lads will all buy into it again and we can have another good season.”
