Blues Train In Bangkok


Everton prepared for Sunday’s match against Leicester City with an open training session at the Suphachalasai Stadium.

On the eve of the game, a large number of local supporters, plus those who had travelled from England, watched on as Roberto Martinez and his coaches put the players through their paces.

Roberto Martinez Training

The fans, who cheered and chanted from the stands, were entertained as the Blues went through several possession and shooting drills before finishing the session with a penalty shootout.

Afterwards, the players and staff signed autographs and posed for photos.

Martinez also spent time greeting fans and representatives from Club partners Chang and Umbro.

Before the squad departed for the team hotel, assistant manager Graeme Jones gave a summary of the evening’s activities to evertontv.

He said: “The Everton fans never let you down – home and abroad, especially the Goodison public who have travelled all the way to Thailand.

“It was certainly different having an open training session and to have a bit of an atmosphere rather than generating it yourself all the time.

“We had the pitch soaked but it dried really quickly with the humidity. The lads adjusted well tonight but obviously the game is a little bit later tomorrow. I’m sure all will be fine and we are looking forward to the game.”
