Napoli coach Gattuso: Very strange situation; mentally very difficult

Napoli coach Rino Gattuso admits the Serie A coronavirus suspension is a difficult situation.

Gattuso concedes being in limbo with no set date for a return to work is tough to handle.

He said, "We are experiencing something strange, which changes our life and our routine. Mentally it is very difficult. It is impossible to go out in the evening or go to a restaurant. Schools and other services are closed. The government has closed everything and people cannot leave the house.

"We are all of the same flesh, of the same blood. There was an Italian comedian, Totò, who said something like: we can be noble or homeless, but in the end we all end up under the same earth. A little what is going on here.

"This is a silent virus. Many are infected and don't know it."
