"The training has been of such a high intensity that I think a lot of players felt a bit jaded. A lot of players were saying that at half-time, that they felt they were a little bit sluggish on their feet and I think that was the overwhelming factor in the first half. The second half we picked up a little bit, but I think we maybe need to take it easy in training."
