Mario Fernandes: It was painful to watch my team's performance from outside
— Last year was very tough for me due to the serious knee injury. The rehabilitation process took a long time. Additionally, I missed the last part of the season because of a minor thigh injury. All those problems are in the past, I work with the team in Campoamor, everything goes according to plans.
It's important that I was able to start working at the preseason camp from the very first day. I'm not in a good shape yet, but I'm pretty sure that I will move forward and gain conditions at the end of this preseason camp. It was painful to watch my team's performance from outside. The first part of the season was very hard, we lost some games, but also won some.
Speaking of my fellow Brazilian Vitinho, he is a big master, but he still goes through the process of adaptation. He is still pretty young, he has a huge talent, but needs to continue to work hard.
