Football has been suspended globally with nations on lockdown and according to Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta, it’s a completely strange and new situation for everyone.
Chelsea players have been on individualised training plans with players training from home but according to Azpilicueta, this cannot replace team training.
“It’s a completely strange and new situation for everyone,” Azpilicueta said.
“We try to replace the activity by doing cycling and other exercises individually. We are thinking about coming back in the best possible shape,” Azpi added, making it clear the team are committed to walk through the forced shutdown with their heads held up high.
“We do some work outside, what we can in the garden, and we are in permanent contact with the team’s technicians so that they can solve any doubts.
“We are connected by video calls and also by phone. You can tell we can’t train normally.
“We are used to preparing at the highest level and, although we have these training and care plans for the day to day, it is clear that daily training cannot be replaced with these individualised plans.
“Let’s see when we come back and hopefully it won’t be for long.”
