We had a week off in December, we went back to work and I swear that 23 out of 25 gamers were ill. I am not joking.

We bet Radja Nainggolan’’ s Cagliari and after about 25 minutes, among our protectors needed to leave the pitch. He might not continue and practically passed out.

Everyone was coughing and had a fever. I felt a lot hotter than typical when I was warming up. I hadn’’ t experienced a fever in years.

After the video game there was a prepared supper with visitors from Puma, however I thanked them and went directly to bed.

We never ever did the Covid-19 tests at the time, so we’’ ll never ever understand for sure.

Note: with regard to the Cagliari-Inter video game, the protector who required to be subbed was Milan Skriniar.

Skriniar just played 17 minutes into that match on January 26.

At the time, Inter declared on social networks that Skriniar had actually felt woozy after stopping working to recuperate from the influenza.
