“The boys are doing very well since I started working with them,” revealed Leal.
“I had a good time with them throughout the week and we have been doing two sessions every day.
“And they are responding very positively and they are showing a lot of commitment.
“They are also exchanging their different experiences trying to understand one football language.
“And I think that the FIFA break really helped us a lot considering our current situation.”
The Brazilian international will be hoping to get a dream start in the Rise and Shine colours against the inform Platinum Stars on Saturday.
Kick-off is at 15:30.
