The corona crisis worries Pep Guardiola – also about its weight.

The slim team manager of the (still) football champion Manchester City fears that he will come out of the forced break visibly pissed. “We will come back stronger, better, nicer and a bit fatter after the crisis,” said the 49-year-old in a video message about the club campaign “Cityzens At Home”.

Guardiola, who had donated one million euros for medical material, combined his witty speech with very serious words. “We miss football. We miss the life we ​​had just a few days ago. But now is the time to listen carefully and to follow our scientists, doctors and nursing staff,” said the former Bayern coach.

“You are my soccer family and we will do everything possible to make you feel better,” said the Spaniard, warning that “stay inside, stay safe.”

As a measure to curb the corona virus, the game in the Premier League is suspended until at least April 30.
