Ghanaian defender Richard Boateng has expressed happiness after resuming full training with his teammates at Alcorcón after an enforced break due to coronavirus pandemic.

All football leagues in Spain were halted since mid-March as a precautionary measure against the spread of the disease.

Following an improvement in the situation in the European country, football authorities managed to convince the government to allow the football season to resume.

Clubs in the Spanish La Liga and the lower tier have since been given the green light to return to training.

"Now, training is something different. We are adapting to the new measures because of the virus," Boateng told his club’s website.

"We have had the opportunity to see each other again and be able to train together. We look very good and we are happy.

"Normal life is not what we had at home, we had to live a different life which was unusual. I have learnt a lot about how to appreciate life and take care of each one. The important thing is to have a family and take care of everyone," he added.

Boateng has made 27 league appearances for Alcorcón, scored five goals and provided four assists so far this season.
