Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos talked to Real Madrid TV and explained that he’s in good form even after spending more than a month on quarantine due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

“I think I’m in better shape than before the quarantine, we gave so much importance to this situation that after losing our training routine in Valdebebas and also the games, we focused so much on our diet, our rest and obviously the individual work. I’m in better condition now than I usually am during the middle of the season because then you are playing once every three days and you don’t have time to work, you only rest. I’m stronger. We knew that this was going to be long but now we see the end of the tunnel and are relaxing a bit so that we don’t come back with too much muscle,” revealed Ramos.

The defender and Real Madrid captain definitely has a point when he says that he’s having more time to focus on his individual training. However, it’s also clear that every single football player will need time to get in proper match fitness in terms of their technical abilities.

Ramos also talked to Modric through an Instagram Live and the two club legends shared their thoughts about the situation.

“Apart from Real Madrid’s training plan I also do some work with my personal trainer. He’s helping me changing some little things and add some others to my routine, things that will allow me to improve. I’ve been working with him since 2015 and I’m very happy,” said the midfielder.

Real Madrid and every club in La Liga will be allowed to return to training in early May. Still, there’s no date for the potential return of the Spanish competition.
