During a recent interview with ESPN‘s Jonathan Johnson, which you can listen to here, we talked about the effect the coronavirus ban on Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League could have on the players.
There’s no date set for when Paris Saint-Germain players will be able to return to the pitch and even training has been canceled by the club.
Going off my own tendencies, I assumed the players would lay about the house and clock far too many hours on the Playstation. I should have known better.
Neymar Jr. is one PSG player making sure he stays fit and doesn’t put on any extra pounds during what could be a month without any football.
On his Instagram Story, Neymar posted a video of him running on a treadmill with a trainer.
O trabalho não para. Neymar Jr e o "home office" 🏃🏽♂

Let’s hope the rest of the players are putting in the same kind of work so that they’re ready to go once the games begin again. We assume there will be some time to train collectively as a team before playing competitively again but you never know what will be decided.
