Castillejo explains life in quarantine; says Milan have sent a training program

By Isak Möller -

As a result of the current situation in Italy, the AC Milan players are currently in quarantine in their own homes. Of course, the Coronavirus has put a complete halt to the entire society in the country, thus shutting down sports. 

In an interview with El partidazo de COPE (via MilanNews.it), Rossoneri winger Samu Castillejo spoke about his experiences so far. Although he is well and currently symptomless, he admitted that it does get a bit boring in quarantine.

“I’m fine, I’m at home. I’ve been home since Monday, since they suspended the league. I wanted to bring my family here but I decided that they should stay in Spain. Now I’m alone.

“You can only go out with authorizations, in case of emergency, for work reasons, to go to the supermarket or pharmacy. Last week I went to the supermarket, it already looked like a hospital instead of a supermarket, there were people with masks and gloves.

“It’s a bit boring, I sleep, I get up, cook, clean, talk to the family. How do I feel? Well, no symptoms, even if a little headache can make you think you have the virus. Fortunately, nothing has happened to me or my teammates,” he began.

Ever since Suso left, the former Villarreal man has been an important player for Stefano Pioli’s side, cementing his spot on the right flank. Certainly, he has started to live up to his price tag after a mediocre first season with the club.

When asked about how he will stay fit, Castillejo revealed that Milan have sent him a training program to work on at home. However, as he highlighted, there is only so much you can do when you can’t go out.

“How do I keep fit? I do those few exercises that I can do at home. The club have sent me a program, but without going out you can’t do much. If I can cook? I can cook but I usually video call to my mother so she can explain things,” he concluded.
