Back in Wellington after a 9-day training camp in Australia!


We travelled to Australia on Saturday 9 September with a group of 24 players and 9 staff members. This training camp is an important part of our preparation for the upcoming season. Wellington Phoenix is the only professional football club in New-Zealand so we took this opportunity to play 3 friendly games against different Australian teams.

9 days, 3 cities, 3 opponents!                         

The first 3 days, we stayed in Coogee (New South Wales, Sydney) for a game against Blacktown City FC. We then travelled to Terrigal for the fixture against Central Coast Mariners and ended our training camp in Cessnock for a game against Newcastle Jets.




As was announced last week, Wellington Phoenix is the new football club where I work as a Football Fitness coach in the staff of head coach Darije Kalezic.  I've signed a 1-year contract till the end of this season. Since I left Belgium in 2011, I have had a lot of opportunities to work in different countries and clubs. New-Zealand is the sixth country and Oceania is already the third continent that I’m working in. Time flies when you’re having fun and doing what you love!
