O'Connell sweating in the Spanish sun

12 July 2017

Jack O'Connell and his team-mates are working hard out in Marbella.

The popular defender spoke to the Blades cameras after another gruelling training programme, saying: "It is tough in this heat but it is another session in the bank as we gear up for the first game of the season."

The first league fixture, of course, is against Brentford, one of O'Connell's former clubs and he added: "I think I've got a point to prove, I didn't play as much as I’d like down there so I'm really looking forward to it."

Before that, though, the Blades face Malaga CF in a friendly on Friday evening and O'Connell, being a fan of Spanish football, knows he's in for a tough time. Listen to watch the defender, minus his magic hat, has to say.
