Fernando Reges, a Brazilian midfielder from Sevilla, suffered a muscle injury the day before LaLiga was stopped due to coronavirus. He had for several weeks and now he sees things with other perspectives: “I am recovering very well and I think I will be there when LaLiga returns. The doctors told me seven to eight weeks, we’ve been four, and if everything goes well, I’ll be ready. Maybe because of the injury I have it will cost me a little more to return, it may take a little longer but I hope to return as quickly as possible … We talk a lot, especially with the physical therapists, “he told Radio Sevilla.The pivot believes that it will take some time to readjust when he returns: “It will be difficult for everyone, we will need several games to pick up the pace, because even if you train at home it is not like doing it in a group, and if the return it is very fast there may be injuries. If anyone in the derby will have an advantage? It does not matter because all the teams are untrained, it will be the same for both teams. In LaLiga all the teams have quality and play well, we want to come back as strong as possible. “ LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of March 24, 2020 Although he has been banned by the club, Fernando had no thoughts of returning to his country, as compatriots like Neymar and Thiago Silva have done: “I have totally ruled it out, here I am safer, I think so. There people do not stay at home and go to the beaches, here I am better, with my family. Thiago and Neymar? I don’t know if they can go back to Europe, Because I think the same problem will be in Brazil in a few weeks. And I think that here in two or three weeks the infections will start to drop. “In closing, he referred to how his family is experiencing the beginning of the pandemic in Brazil: “In Brazil they believe that it will not be something big. But I talk to my family and they are worried, in two weeks what can happen in Spain. No one expected the coronavirus to act like this; this is a thing that will go down in history and will be studied in schools. “
