Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal has been talking about the current coronavirus crisis and how he feels like he’s “in a nightmare that’s getting worse and worse.”

Spain has been very badly hit by the pandemic and has been in lockdown since the middle of March.

Barcelona players are training at home currently, with personalised regimes, and Vidal spoke about how he’s feeling in such difficult times.

“It’s all been so strange. Being at home every day, watching people die all over the world - it’s horrible.

”I’m constantly worried, and I feel like I’m in a nightmare that’s getting worse and worse.

”I’m really sad about everything, because no one knows when it’s going to end. I never thought something like this could happen.

”We’ve just got to be there for each other as much as we can.”

Barcelona players this week announced they’d be taking pay cuts to help the club during the crisis, while Vidal has started an initiative, along with Gary Medel, to raise funds for the Red Cross in Chile.
