Manchester United star Scott McTominay is not worried about the shorter summer break.
The Red Devils and Scotland midfielder knows there is a short turnaround between the end of last season and the start of this campaign.
But he feels the players are fit enough to ensure they can get back to match fitness without the need for a huge preseason.
He told the official podcast of the Scotland national team: “Yeah I’m very well.
“I’ve had a bit of time off with my friends and my family. I think it was two weeks after the Europa League semi-final.
“It is good to be back kicking a ball about. You miss it, whether it is two weeks or longer. You just can’t wait to get back with all of the boys again and obviously all the staff as well are brilliant.
“The [short] break was a strange time for everyone, you know. Everyone is sort of at different stages – some of the lads have had [Scottish] league matches, some have had friendly matches and some of us, like myself, have had nothing!
“But when it has come to training, everybody has been ready. We had a little loosener and then the work started properly in the lead up to the games.”
