I first realized corona was a serious deal when coach Fatah rang me while I was wondering packing my suitcase and told me that they were cancelling my flight because of Rona.  At this point I knew things were gonna get bad , but I didn’t think it would end up like this especially in England and the states. I genuinely thought that the season would be postponed and that we would be playing in late May/early June and then after that didn’t happen I thought all European football would be done.  Thank god that some counties were able to get it done safely.  I’m real excited to be back out on the field , I’ve missed the game and after waiting all this time to be back out there I’m ready to hit some dudes in the mouth.
