Covid-19 scares Thiago Silva
PSG defender Thiago Silva admitted that he’s “scared” by the impact that the outbreak of coronavirus will have after returning to his native Brazil. The Selecao center-back flew home earlier this week and is currently in quarantine, as the worldwide pandemic continues to cause life disruptions around the world. Although the 35-year-old resident of Brazil praised the swift actions of French President Emmanuel Macron to address the many issues that arose from the outbreak of Covid-19, he called on his compatriots in Brazil to take responsibility and try to stop the spread of the disease. “I arrived yesterday after a fairly calm flight. Here, in Rio de Janeiro, I am in quarantine. It is a difficult situation, but the person has a wonderful ability to adapt,” Thiago told reporters.
It’s a moment of reflection
“How will I keep fit? In Paris, it will be as tricky as here. In Paris, training centers have closed, the club too. And in Brazil, they just made the same decisions. We will try to do a little run, but it will be more difficult for bodybuilding or things like that. We are not on vacation. It is a moment of reflection. We are all afraid of what is happening. “President Macron drew inspiration from the situation in Italy to take deterrence measures. But, even being attentive to what was happening in this neighboring country fails to protect it yourself. I hope that the crisis will not be as severe as in Europe. It is our hope.
Thiago: Stay at home
“I hope that people will realize the seriousness of the situation as soon as possible. I hope the beaches are empty. It is not a school vacation. It is a moment of reflection.” You should stay at home in the hope that everything will return to normal as soon as possible.” Brazil has recorded less than ten deaths from coronavirus so far but has recently closed its borders as it seeks to contain the virus in the coming weeks. Thiago Silva’s football future, meanwhile, is in the air: the veteran’s PSG contract is due to end on June 30. It is still unknown whether the 2019-20 season will end before this date, and how such clubs around the world should decide on the futures of players who should become free agents in just over three months.
