Aston Villa goalkeeper Pepe Reina has told about his coronavirus battle, mentioning how he feared when he understood there ‘was no oxygen’ at some point.
Spanish goalkeeper was among the Premier League stars who tested positive for the COVID-19.
Former Liverpool, Bayern and AC Milan’s no 1 said he’s winning the battle, but reveals having a tough time, staying indoors and suffering from fever, cough and headache.
Reina said (cited by Mirror): “I am winning the battle against coronavirus only now.
“The only real fear I had was when I understood that there was no oxygen: endless minutes of fear, as if suddenly my throat had closed.
“It was the worst moments of my life.
“I was very tired after experiencing the first symptoms of the virus.
“A fever, dry cough and a headache that never left me – it was just that constant feeling of tiredness.
“As a result I spent the first six or eight days indoors.”
