Toby Alderweireld warned adversaries of Tottenham that the Londoners would be fit and rarer to follow the lockdown of coronavirus.

Spikes will restart Premier League action on June 19 at home against Manchester United as normal assistance continues after the pandemic-caused three-month hiatus.

In deciding the personality of Champions League qualifiers in the division, the clash could demonstrate crucial, with Spurs trailing back in eighth by four and United as of now in fifth place.

And while lockdown required a change in the training practices of each club, Alderweireld demands there was no decrease in power at Spurs, at least.

“I accept we prepared ourselves in the most ideal way. Individuals think we’ve been on some type of holiday because we’ve been in lockdown yet we weren’t. We went lockdown on Friday and we were home on Saturday and Sunday-however on Monday we went straight into zoom meetings and all the hardware was sent to us for our muscles at home,” the Belgian defender explained to talkSPORT.

“We have had the training that we expected to keep our muscle tone. We had GPS in the park to run-not snappy running, hard running.”That dislike a holiday when we returned to training. And we trained extremely hard when we did the training. Training one-on-one is sometimes tougher than with the whole team. I accept we’re ready to contend. That dislike a holiday when we returned to training. And we trained extremely hard when we did the training. Training one-on-one is sometimes tougher than with the whole team. I accept we’re ready to contend. You can’t compare to [pre-season lockdown]. We had no holiday, we simply prepare and train all alone and we didn’t have a clue when we played again,” he added.

The announcement by the Premier League that fixtures would continue came under three weeks before the initial matches, yet Alderweireld repeated that they were prepared to get back on the pitch for quite a while.
