There were plenty of happy faces when Western United returned to training on Wednesday ahead of the resumption of the 2019/20 Hyundai A-League season.
Following Tuesday’s announcement that the season will resume, the United playing squad and coaches took to the pitch for the first time in over two months.
Head Coach Mark Rudan was delighted to see the faces of his players and staff and was impressed with the first session back.
“It was great to have all players and staff back together again,” Rudan told wufc.com.au.
“To see so many happy faces made the wait worth it. The players have come back in great shape. Fantastic first up session.”
Midfielder Max Burgess, who scored four goals in United’s last two fixtures, added how relieved he was resume training: “Top vibes coming back together as a group again and seeing everyone. Great feeling getting back on the field and doing what we love.”
Western United will undergo a month of training before taking on local rival Melbourne Victory on July 16 in the A-League’s first game back.
