Thompson: "Everyone ready to go"

Midfielder reviews Braga test

16 July 2019

Millwall look "fit, sharp and ready to go" according to midfielder Ben Thompson.

The Lions are entering the final day of the pre-season training camp and on Tuesday night suffered a narrow defeat to Portuguese giants Braga.

The players have been training non-stop in the Algarve - often several times a day - and have also fitted in two games, the first of which was against Fleetwood on Saturday.

Thompson has featured in both and believes he and his team-mates are in a better place this summer ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

Speaking after the game against Braga, he said: "It was good minutes and everyone did very well.

"They've got a great squad and some of the football they play is outstanding. The way they pass it about, the technique, the sharpness they've got - it's second to none. That is where you aspire to be as a player. 

"As a team we played extremely well compared to where we were at last year. I think we're a better team now and that showed out there.

"The training has been good - the standard of it has been brilliant. Everyone looks fit, sharp and ready to go. We're looking forward to the season."
