Wife of Ghanaian forward Kevin Prince Boateng, Melissa Satta feels privileged in Turkey with her husband and son as home country Italy battles with the coronavirus crisis.
The stunning model left Italy six weeks ago to visit her husband, who had signed a loan deal with Besiktas, but ended up staying beyond her scheduled time.
Together with their son Maddox, the family are having a good time despite being in quarantine.
However, Italy remains the worst hit by the global pandemic with over 9000 losing their lives from the coronavirus.
“My son and I left Milan with a bag and two pajamas,” Satta told Italian magazine Derby. "We were planning to stay six days.
"However, we will be here for six weeks. Football players are not allowed to return home. Maddox and I came to see our father, and then chaos exploded. Turkey had less trouble, " she added.
“We are at home too. Currently, there is no shortage of masks and disinfectants. The difficulty I have seen in Italy is not here. Of course we miss Italy," she continued.
"It is even more difficult to live the quarantine away from home. Technology and the joy of Maddox (son of the couple) accompany us. We did not even have spare underwear when coming. I hope it ends soon even if we are lucky compared to other people. "
