Xavi Pascual, the head coach of Zenit Saint Petersburg, talked about the EuroLeague suspension amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The Catalan coach thinks it is difficult to play again this season, but if play resumes in summer, then the players should accept it.
Pascual also added that what is most worrying for him is how people will return to normal after the crisis is over.
“I find it difficult to play again this season. But what worries me the most is when everything will return to normal.
And I have the feeling that, with the fear that we all have inside, until we all have a certain security, for example that there is a medicine to treat the disease or a vaccine to avoid getting it, life is very difficult to return to normal.
If there is a decision to play in the summer, that is a situation that all athletes must assume. With all that humanity is going through, for us to stay a year without vacations cannot be a problem for absolutely anyone.
Ultimately, we provide entertainment, we try to make people have fun, and our public duty is to do so. If we have the possibility to play in July or August, of course we must assume it,” Pascual said in a n interview with Mundo Deportivo.
