?Toni Kross has revealed what life has been like since being placed in quarantine at Real Madrid, after their basketball player Trey Thompkins tested positive for the coronavirus.
Domestic football across Europe has been put on hold and it’s expected the initial 3 April date which was given in the Premier League is only acting as a placeholder, while a more concrete date over when football will return will come later this week.
Real Madrid, like most of Spain, have been heavily affected by the coronavirus outbreak and are self-isolating, with Kroos offering an insight into what life has been like during an interview with Late Night Berlin.
“We’re in good shape,” Kroos said, quoted by AS. “I’m not bored, as I’m sure you can imagine with three kids. Being at home is never boring with the children around. Whatever way you want to look at it, the main thing is that we are all fine.
“Here at home I’ve been trying out a few different hairstyles but I only do it for my wife,” he jokingly added. “I have a lot of toilet paper here at home.”
The Germany international was also asked about the future of Euro 2020, which ?UEFA have since confirmed will be postponed to next year.
“When the tournament is played is the least of our worries at the moment. For now, the most important thing is getting rid of this invisible enemy and for our lives to return to normality.”
Kroos isn’t the only player who’s been impacted by Real Madrid’s self-imposed quarantine, as Luka Jovi? has revealed he actually used the same equipment as Thompkins before his official diagnosis came through.
“I used the same equipment as Thompkins,” Jovi? told B92. “But I don’t have any symptoms.”
