QPR players face tough pre-season – Holloway

QPR boss Ian Holloway says his players can expect to be worked extremely hard when they visit Portugal for a pre-season training camp in late June. 

Rangers will spend seven days in the Algarve, close to the Atlantic Ocean, soon after reporting back for pre-season training.

Holloway has previously used the venue during his time as manager of Blackpool and Millwall and believes it is the ideal place to prepare for next season.

Rangers will train behind closed doors and will not play any matches during their time in Portugal – Holloway is keen to focus purely on intensive training sessions with a large emphasis on fitness.

“I’m delighted we’re going back to a place that I’m familiar with – and I know is absolutely perfect for a pre-season training camp,” Holloway told QPR’s website.

“It’ll be work, work, work work, work. There are no games on this trip so it’s not one for the fans to have to worry about booking anything up – everything we do will be behind-closed-doors because the first week of pre-season is so crucial.

“This is purely a camp for the lads to work three-times-a-day to get some important early work in the tank.

“I got where I was as a player through good fitness levels – and that all came from really good pre-season campaigns.

“It’s a wonderful venue and I’m already looking forward to working the boys hard.”
