Jonathas: 'Coronavirus made me so weak'

Former Serie A player Jonathas, now in Spain with Elche, warns his experience of COVID-19 was terrifying. “I was so weak, I almost fainted in the shower.”

The 31-year-old striker spent much of his career in Italy with Brescia, Pescara, Torino and Latina, but was in Spain when he tested positive for coronavirus a month ago.

“I have recovered and now feel at 100 per cent again, but I still don’t know how and where I picked it up,” Jonathas told TMW Radio.

Birthday boy Villar: 'We must be strong'

Roma midfielder Gonzalo Villar turns 22 today and celebrates in self-isolation, encouraging people to “be strong and responsible, staying at home”.

The Spain Under-21 star moved to the Olimpico in January, when the Giallorossi picked him up for €4m from Elche CF.

He has since gone on to appear three times in Serie A and his last match before the forced break – in the 4-3 win against Cagliari in Sardinia – was his first full 90 minutes in the League.

Villar: 'No Roma pressure, but stress...'

Gonzalo Villar insists he doesn’t feel the “pressure” of making the step from Elche to Roma, but did lose 2kg through the stress of transfer talks.

The midfielder turns 22 next month and arrived from Elche in a deal worth €4m plus up to €1m in bonuses, making his debut as a substitute in the 4-2 defeat to Sassuolo on February 1.

“I want to thank everyone for the welcome I received and all the help I am getting to settle in,” said Villar in his press conference.
