The beauty of football is that there is literally no offseason. No matter what time of the year it is, there's usually a competitive match to watch whether it's the Premier League season, international play, or even MLS. It's a year-round sport and it's awesome.
For example: Euro 2016 is winding down, the quarterfinal stage is just getting underway. Which means we have a few more weeks of high level international matches. Yet, today some Tottenham Hotspur players have already returned to training.
Pre-season is under way The hard work begins #COYShttps://t.co/AeuDSQpoKx— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) July 1, 2016
Spotted in the video are Ryan Mason, Clinton N'Jie, Heung-Min Son, Nacer Chadli, and Michel Vorm among others.
We're only about three weeks away from Spurs' first scheduled preseason match against Juventus. That gives us maybe one or two weeks of radio silence to deal with until action picks back up. If you're into giving other leagues a shot like MLS, you can go a whole calendar year watching the sport we all love. Take that other inferior sports.
