“People are buying sanitizer and a lot of things to clean your hands, so, for now, it is very safe”, the pacey winger said as quoted by the club's website.

He added, “The government has banned gatherings in the country, as the UK did, so for me, it is very strange because I can't watch football because there is no football anywhere to watch and normally when I'm not training, I'm watching football.
