Messi: 'Football, like life, will never be the same'
In an interview with El País, the Argentine star spoke about the mark left by coronavirus across the world, and not only in sports.
Leo Messi has spoken again. In an interview with El País, FC Barcelona's No.10 spoke about the impact of the coronavirus not only on football, but also on life.
"Football, like life in general, I think will never be the same," he said.
With the return to training, football is gradually getting back to normal. To a new normal. “The return to training, competitions and what was previously done in a normal way, now will have to be started again, but progressively. It will be a strange situation for us and for anyone who has to change their usual working dynamics,” Messi added.
The Argentine went further still: “A lot of people have had a really bad time because this situation has affected them in some way, as happened to all those who lost their family and friends and couldn't even barely say goodbye to them. There can be nothing worse than losing the people you love the most, that creates enormous frustration for me and seems to me the most unfair thing of all.”
And how will the best football player in the world remember this pandemic? “With a feeling of grief and frustration for those who suffered the most due to the loss of their loved ones. And also with infinite thanks to all the people who fought to fight the virus from health centres.”
