“Adam was this week, for the first time, part of the warming up. His face showed how happy he was about this!

“I saw in the last hour them both with the fitness coaches on the pitch doing technical things and stuff like this, so it all looks good.

“In the end, they all need to be at 100 percent and they aren’t at the moment, so that’s it – but they’re on a good way.”
