The Baggies are in action against MLS outfit San Jose Earthquakes in California tonight and the Swede says he will be up for the match as if it is a meeting in England’s top flight.
“I always hear that the results aren’t too important in pre-season. But everyone here, when they play a game, wants to win,” he told Express & Star.
“If you ask the physical team and the medical team, they’ll say it’s about getting fitness. If you ask the gaffer, it’s about getting the tactical things right.
“It is a training game so it’s about getting all of those things – but you want a result as well. You always want a result.
“Personally, I don’t think I can approach games or training in any other way than giving it my best and giving all I have.
“I don’t think I have it in me to do it any other way.”
