Manchester City stalwart Fernandinho has expressed his sadness and admits he misses his teammates at the Etihad.
And most importantly, he misses football.
“I am very much missing football. Not just the football, but my relationships with my team-mates, with the staff and all the people at the Club,” revealed Fernandinho.
“I miss arriving at the Club in the morning, having a chat with everyone in the kitchen. This is a tough time for everybody, and I am feeling it right now because I am really missing everyone.”
“(I really miss) the training sessions, the relationships with team-mates and staff, the time before training you are talking with the physios, sometimes the kitchen after breakfast and even on the pitch before training starts. Everything,” he stressed.
“We live in different ways so now we are just isolated far from everyone. You make some phone and video calls, but it is not the same. It is hard to be honest.
“We have been in touch with the Club staff and they are sending us some plans, about what kind of exercises we have to do.
“Sometimes I take the footballs out, sometimes take a rest, but most of the days we are doing some exercises.
“Sometimes we have a video call conference with them and a training session as well. That is the way we are trying to keep fit, but it isn’t the same of course.”
Germany are set to restart football in May while Italy are planning to restart training in May. England cannot be far behind, can it?
