Mark Weingard, catches up with FC Bayern München and Spain International Thiago Alcantara, on whats life like in Munich and when will they get back to football life.
Thiago, who is currently in Munich as he was not allowed to leave Germany to go to his native country, said that most of Germany is in lockdown.
On the German Health System, Thiago said that the health system is very good, “and they have a lot of machines per amount of people. I have a feeling they are more advanced compared to Spain and Italy, and it is a little bit more controlled.”
Meanwhile Thiago said that following an agreement between Bundesliga and the German Health Authorities, they resumed training last week in small groups of four. “It was a kind of relief for us as players, and I hope that in the middle of next month we start the league – it will not be as normal as before, but it will be done in a safer way,” Thiago said.
Finally, from his self-isolation in Germany, Thiago is also doing his bit to help those in need, during this outbreak. In fact, through his foundation, he is working with a lot of hospitals in Barcelona, Girona, Madrid and Vigo – providing machinery, equipment and protective masks. His Foundation is also working with UNICEF to help families and children.
