The footballing world, heck, the world, in general, feels like a weird place right now. Coronavirus is wreaking havoc, while we’ll have no high-level sport in this country until at least next month.
For the footballers, it’s a weird situation. These guys will have usual routines at this stage in the season, which has now all been thrown up in the air. What’s worse is that we’re still without a definitive return date. It’s just all a bit strange.
As fans, we look up to our footballing heroes and the message does tend to sink in much quicker when it comes from those idols. The latest to weigh in on the situation is Eric Bailly, who has sent a defiant message to the fans amid the global pandemic.
It’s a few simple words, but if it helps even one person to keep positive about what’s unfolding, then it’s a job well done by Bailly.
Don’t forget that this is someone who has dealt with his own adversity recently. Coming back from that injury he suffered in pre-season shows what a determined individual he is, so Bailly definitely knows what he’s talking about in that regard…
Hopefully, we have football back soon, though, because this is tedious!
