Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane talked to the French Football Federation and explained his routine during the current quarantine and lockdown measures in Spain.
“I do physical training, some conditioning and it’s true that I do things that I just can’t do on a normal day, trying to improve my weaknesses. We have to keep going, I spend more time with the family, I love to take care of them. I play sports with my son, I also play videogames,” said Varane.
He was also asked about the postponement of the 2020 Euro and Real Madrid’s plans for the future.
“We have to adapt and get use to this new scenario. It’s true that I was reaching the 2020 Euro in good form and I hope to be in the same good form next year. There’s no date for us to return to training, we’ll see when we can play and train, we live on a day to day basis. There’s nothing set in stone right now and it’s not easy to work for the long term,” concluded the defender.
It looks like La Liga teams could return to training by May 11th but the Spanish government hasn’t confirmed it just yet and are waiting to see if the situation keeps improving.
Varane has been an undisputed starter for Real Madrid so far this season and it’s clear that he will lead the team’s defensive line for years to come once Sergio Ramos decided to hang up his boots and retire.
