Manager Koeman and fitness coach Jan Kluitenberg continue to be active on the social media side of things -

The trip to Austria is mainly a fitness camp, and there is a behind-closed-doors training game on schedule too, but the club has issued an advisory to the fans that there will be no admittance for this game.
Fans are urged not to travel to Austria as this is not a fixture.
The behind-closed-doors game is simply part of the squad’s planned regime of fitness activity during their time in Austria and is nothing more than a training exercise.
The Club's first pre-season fixture is away to Barnsley on July 23.
UPDATE: The U21’s are also training away from Finch Farm this week. David Unsworth has the youngsters in Spain.
