Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is happy with their training camp in Dubai.
The Black Cats have spent the last five days training in the Middle East â dodging the cold and snow showers on Wearside in the process.
âThe weather back home hasnât been great for quite some considerable time, so this is good preparation for the last third of the season,â O'Neill told the Sunday Sun.
âIt will give us renewed energy and enable us to finish the season as strongly as possible.
âDubai is a pretty popular spot with a lot of the teams. I came here before when I was coach of Aston Villa and most of the players have been here before with their former clubs too, so itâs perfect."
