Collins returned to his team’s training base for day one of pre-season testing full of excitement at being back amongst the action. “It feels amazing,” he told the club’s official website. “It was a long last season for me, so I feel really good to start my first full pre-season with the team again. I’m really happy, I’m motivated and I’m feeling really good.”
Collins’ return to the pitch is a testament to his resilience and the hard work he put in during his rehabilitation. He credits his team’s squad for helping him through his long recovery, and, now back on the grass, he is hoping to continue developing the strong bonds he has with his teammates.
As a left back, Collins is responsible for defending the left side of the pitch and supporting his team’s attacks. He is known for his speed, stamina, and ability to cross the ball into the opposition’s box. Collins’ return to his team’s starting lineup will boost his team’s defense and attack, and his presence will be felt on the pitch.
In sports, injuries are a common occurrence, and athletes often have to go through long and painful recoveries to return to their best form. Collins’ return to training is a testament to his perseverance and determination to return to the pitch. His team’s fans will be eagerly anticipating his return to competitive action, and they will be hoping that he can help his team achieve their goals in the upcoming season.
