Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson excited about upcoming matches with Premier League giants

Phil Parkinson expressed his excitement for Wrexham upcoming pre-season matches against football powerhouses Manchester United and Chelsea.

Parkinson sees these high-profile encounters as valuable occasions for Wrexham to challenge themselves against top-flight teams, demonstrate their skills, and gauge their performance against elite competition.

Today was the important part. The lads are doing running now, and then going to the gym. It’s about making sure the work is right. But It was an important day, and just as important as Chelsea will be and Manchester United,” said the Englishman ahead of their pre-season tour.

“It’s incredible for the club to have a tour of this magnitude, it’s important in many ways, especially commercially but we’re focused on working hard to come back in the best possible shape for the Milton Keynes game,” he added.

The opportunity to compete against famous clubs such as Manchester United and Chelsea marks a momentous occasion for the football club owned by Hollywood figures Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

But Parkinson conveyed his team’s enthusiasm and anticipation for these matches, recognizing the upcoming games’ significance and excitement.

“We had some of the lads and coaching staff out in North Carolina for the TST 7-a-side tournament and they told us what the support was like out there. Everyone is very excited to get over there,” he added.
