Morgan Schneiderlin salutes his mother, a nurse, amid COVID-19 crisis: “It is taking a huge physical & mental toll.”

Speaking on RMC this evening, 30-year-old French international central midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin discussed how he is coping with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and had words of encouragement and admiration for his mother, who is currently on the frontlines in fighting this disease as nurse.

“It is a dramatic situation. I am speaking a lot with my mum, who tells me that this is a very difficult period for everyone who is working in the hospital world, how much it is taking out of them both mentally and physically. I am trying to support my mother as much as possible.”

“I am on crutches and not able to move since my operation (he underwent a procedure on his knee at the end of February). I still have two weeks to hold on before I can put my leg on the ground. It is my wife who has to support me (laughs). When you have an 18-month old child, it is difficult to watch TV series. As it was nice in the last two days, we took advantage and were in the garden with the little one. He was able to run. We are playing little board games.”

The Everton man is currently in Strasbourg, where he and his wife decided it was best to locate to amid the ongoing crisis.
