Part of the Spanish team for Euro-2020, Thiago Alcântara, 30, recalled the period when he was infected with Covid-19, in October last year.
“I was with my family and the first thing that comes to my mind is their protection and that of my companions. I told them what was happening to me, asked to be isolated, not to have anyone around. I felt really bad. I didn’t want anyone to be like me, but I know there are worse and, unfortunately, fatal cases», said the player, in an interview with the newspaper Marca.
The Spanish team has been living a week of uncertainty due to the contagions of Sergio Busquets and Diego Llorente, even prompting the call of another 17 players to work on the sidelines of the 24 players squad initially called up by coach Luis Enrique.
