The Hammers boss is repeating a trick he used with the squad last season, as when they returned from Dubai they only lost one further game all season.
Speaking to West Ham TV Sam explained the move, ““The climate will be perfect and the training facilities will be superb. We’ll be carrying on with the training, but let them relax too and after they’ve done their training allow them to enjoy the warm weather, the sunshine and the beauty of Dubai.
“Everything that goes with Dubai is fantastic, it’s one of the best resorts in the world today and when you can go to release the pressures they’re under on a day-to-day basis then hopefully that will stand us in good stead for the last part of the season.
“It worked last year, we had a fantastic finish to the season and I still think the trip that we had at this time last year was a big benefit in the end for getting us promoted into the Premier League.
“Most clubs have already been away, I’ve talked to a lot of managers and they’ve already taken the opportunity to get away when they can. A few more are going around the same time as us and some more afterwards. Nearly everybody does it today which obviously is a benefit to you and the team, and the results when you come back.”
