The Valencia striker is pleased to see that Liga will resume from June 11, after three months of suspension.
“This is good news for us, he said. We have resumed for two and a half weeks and that means we can find the reasons, have fun again. It won’t be the same atmosphere, but it’s good.
The former PSG player also described the resumption of training, which was first individual: “The first week corresponded to Phase 1. We individually trained with a physical coach for each player. There were three of us on the pitch, in time slots, far apart. We didn’t have to fit the ball.”
“Exercises have become more normal”
From the second week the restrictions were somewhat eased. “We started with groups of eight, nine. It gives us the opportunity to get back some more fun, with adventure exercises, small matches. We found the comrades’ atmosphere.
“We’re still in this phase. Exercises have become more normal, with contacts, tackles … It’s football, huh. If we resume in three weeks, we have to start all over again sometime.”
Although there are still eleven days left, Valencia can still believe in a qualifier for the next Champions League. Albert Celade’s men are really 7th, four points behind Real Sociedad and 4th place.
