Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is glad football is returning after months of absence and paid keen attention to the German Bundesliga as they resumed action today.
The Spaniard admitted that the matches felt like training due to the absence of fans, while also admitting the importance of fans to the game.
“I feel like I’m watching a training session,” the Monaco midfielder tweeted during the game.
“You can hear all players and coaches shouting. Now we will value the power of the fans even more.
“Captains choosing pitch sides with a three metre distance when straight away they have to fight for every ball against each other face to face.
“I’m glad football is back, we all needed it, but it will take ages to get used to this new world of football.”
After Haaland’s solo-celebration, Fabregas added: “You can’t celebrate goals together? Didn’t know this one.”
One of Fabregas’ followers tweeted that, despite players being unable to celebrate together and high-five each other, they could stand side-by-side in a free-kick wall, to which he replied: “Exactly!”
