Stuttgart's on-loan midfielder Moritz Leitner has insisted that he and his teammates are ready to work hard in the off-season training camp in South Africa.
Leitner, on a two-year loan deal from Borussia Dortmund, said that wherever the training camp is the players need to make sure that they are ready for the second half of the season.
"The journey took more than a full day, but that's all part of it," he told Bundesliga.com.
"It really doesn't make any difference whether the training camp is in South Africa or in Germany. We are here to work and get prepared for the remainder of the season."
Stuttgart were disappointing in the first 17 games of the season and are currently in 10th.
