The club captain is excited to roll up his sleeves and improve several facets of his game without having to worry about preparing his body for matches.
"The international break is good for me," he told MUTV. "During the 10 days, I can work on my individual stuff like fitness and other technical things.
"It is also always good to have a few days for yourself. When you have lots of games, like we have recently, you just manage yourself until the next one and you don't work on yourself that much. Sometimes it is nice to have these days to work on yourself."
