AS Roma centre-forward Patrik Schick is convinced of a big campaign ahead.
Schick says a full preseason makes all the difference.
“Being able to do the whole pre-season is important for me," Schick told the AS Roma Match Programme.
“It feels much better, when you don't have pre-season from the start you struggle a lot and it's easy to have physical problems. That's the big difference compared to last year.
“I don't think I've changed a lot in terms of character, the biggest difference, as I said, is the preparation. I hope it will change the whole season.
"It's not that this could be an important season for me: it must be. And I believe it will be."
