In an interview with Ole, Argentina-born defender German Pezzella gave some insight into his fight against coronavirus and how hard the last month has been for him. Pezzella was quoted as saying "I was sh***ing myself thinking: 'Will I wake up not being able to breathe tomorrow, will it be difficult or not? It's not easy: I've been shut indoors for practically a month. I went through my obligatory quarantine of not being in contact with anyone. Now the only thing I can do is go to the supermarket, but thanks to God we're lucky enough to get food sent to our house. I avoid going out because there are queues of people, you [have to] wait outside."
