The striker is currently undergoing a gruelling preseason, working hard to keep up his fitness levels for August's Premier League kick-off against Manchester United.
He told LUTV: “I think it's getting tough every year! It has been hard but it's been good.
“What we did the first year with Marcelo, things have now grown on top of that so rather than just be a standard pre-season, we push ourselves to get better.
“Normally you can come into pre-season and be a little bit off it, and by the end of pre-season you'll be ready.
“Here you have to do a lot in the off-season to make sure you can start at the base you need to here, which is also important for reducing injuries.
“By the end of it, we'll all be flying!"
