It has been the opinion of many experts that football, just like most aspects of human life, will no longer be the same. This view has not only be expressed by many, but has be seen in the football leagues that have resumed so far, especially the Bundesliga which has shown that football without the fans is never the same as with fans’ presence. Even training sessions before the advent of the Coronavirus was far more entertaining.
Now as the Laliga plans to resume, this very opinion has reared its head as the reigning World Footballer of the year and FC Barcelona captain, the mercurial Lionel Messi bared his mind on what to expect when the LaLiga resumes.
The Barcelona captain is preparing for a return to La Liga action after a break of nearly three months because of the virus.
Messi knows it has been a tough time for many across the world and offered some insight into his thoughts on recent events.
This is what Messi had to say;
“I don’t think football, like life in general, will be the same,” he said. “Nearly all of us have the doubt about how the world will be after everything that has happened.
“Beyond the lockdown and the situation that caught us by surprise, many people have had a really bad time because the situation has affected them in some way, like with those that lost friends and family without even being able to say goodbye.
“I think there have been many negatives in this crisis, but there cannot be anything worse than losing the people you love the most, that frustrates me hugely and seems unfair on everyone.”
Well from all of the above, it is very clear that the football fans all over the world are in for a new way of life as far as football mathes are concerned.
