Vurnon Anita: "I don't like pre-season, but it's necessary to get fit and to build stamina for the whole season.
"It's very important.
"I don't like it but I do it with pleasure because I know it gives me everything for the future and for the whole season.
"It'll be good to play games again and see where we are as a team, so I'm looking forward to it and we must make it a better season than last season."
"I don't like it but I do it with pleasure"? WTF
