Italian-born Ghanaian striker Emmanuel Gyasi says he is struggling to cope with the lockdown but insists it's important rules are respected to prevent coronavirus from wreaking more havoc in the European country.
On 9 March 2020, the government of Italy under Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte imposed a national quarantine, restricting the movement of the population except for necessity, work, and health circumstances, in response to the growing pandemic of COVID-19 in the country.
Italy is one of the most affected nation by Covid-19 worldwide, having registered over 53,578, infected cases and 4,825 deaths so far.
"I am locked in the house in La Spezia, it is not easy to stay away from parents and siblings but it is necessary to respect the rules," Gyasi said.
Gyasi plays for Serie B side Spezia. He has been in great form, netting six times and providing two assists before the league was suspended.
