Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel has expressed anxiety over the recent rise in the number of new Coronavirus cases which has forced the nation to declare a second spell of lockdown in order to reduce the spread of the virus.
The German coach revealed via a press conference that he was worried the current 2020/21 campaign still had to go on despite the new wave of the Coronavirus.
As the French president announced the lockdown, Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel said he was concerned.
Tuchel revealed how it was getting very close to normal for him to always follow Coronavirus principles, getting regular tests and having a nose mask on.
France enforced a second lockdown on Friday, when the country reported 49,215 new cases of COVID-19 and 545 deaths.
Like sport around the world, Ligue 1 was suspended in March due to coronavirus, but the 2020-21 season is set to continue despite the wave of infections.
Tuchel said he was concerned, but added he had become accustomed to being regularly tested for COVID-19.
“We are not just professional players or coaches. We are human beings. These are big changes that influence everyone. We are worried like everyone else,” he said.
“It is our challenge and our responsibility to adapt to all the rules. We trust [French president Emmanuel] Macron and [German chancellor Angela] Merkel. That is a certainty. We have to do this together, it’s our obligation.
“We will accept all the rules and we will adapt. Here we are going through a lot of [COVID-19] tests.
“It’s almost a habit for me to have something in my nose. It has become a habit almost every morning.”
