Seattle Sounders FC
FRISCO -- FC Dallas had its only full training session of the week Thursday.
Coach Schellas Hyndman wants to make sure his players are rested and as healthy as possible going into the final two regular season matches of the season.
“When you get fatigued it’s not just a physical thing, it’s a mental thing. Since January 15 we’ve been going at it,” Hyndman said.
It’s been a light week for the first team. FCD traveled back from Los Angeles on Monday and had Tuesday off. Wednesday the Reserves played Chicago while the starters had a light recovery session.
Hyndman is giving the entire squad off Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There are no MLS matches this weekend due to World Cup qualifying.
“These days off will be tremendous for the guys to recover,” Hyndman said.
FC Dallas will begin preparing on Monday for its nationally televised match at Seattle on Sunday, Oct. 21 (8 p.m. CT on ESPN).
