Ghanaian international Emmanuel Agyemang Badu who plays for Hellas Verona has spoken about the effect of covid 19(corona virus) on them as players during an interview with Al-Jazeera.
Emmanuel Agyemang Badu who has been plying his footballing trade in Italy since 2010 has described the current situation as a tough one that has led to them quarantining themselves for 6 days.
“The situation is a tough one, a very scary one. Now we’ve been home for the past six days without going out. So it’s really really tough,” Emmanuel Agyemang Badu told Al Jazeera.
“Training has been suspended. Unfortunately, we played Sampdoria [Serie A rivals] last week away in Genoa, and some of their players have tested positive for the coronavirus. So as a club we’ve been quarantined for 14 days.”
“We only talk on our WhatsApp platform. When you start hearing of the casualties and number of deaths, you are human, so automatically you start feeling weird. Scared sometimes, because life is precious.”
Italy’s report on 1,266 deaths and 17,660 infections has sent shivers down the spine of many players plying their trade there.
