Coronavirus Made Me Feel Like I Was Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro – Rodgers

Brendan RodgersLeicester City coach, Brendan Rodgers has come out to say that he has made a full recovery after contracting coronavirus when the PL season was suspended.

Brendan Rodgers simply said the symptoms of the deadly disease can be likened to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro because it left him breathless.

According to him, he and his wife contracted it together and the experience was horrible because they had no sense of smell and taste for a long time.

He added that the feeling of being weak and finding it hard to walk was very strange and he is very relieved to be free from the virus.

His words, “Me and my wife had it just after [the season] broke up. A week later I really started to struggle, I had no smell and no taste,”

“I had no strength, and I really struggled, and my wife was the same as well. I got tested and we both had it. I could hardly walk.

“It reminded me of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, as you climb higher you get more breathless.

“Walking 10 yards felt very different. I went for a run and I just couldn’t do it.

“I felt really weak, had no real appetite, and had a weird sensation for three weeks of having no taste.”

On Leicester City, “It was good to have that contact again and to be near them,”

“The last couple of days we have split into groups of 12, which is not normal, but how they have adapted has been really nice.

“The rhythm of it [training] has changed but I’m really pleased with them physically and it’s like they have never been away.

“There hasn’t been anyone that has given us any inclination that they do not want to play. I feel safe and we are very lucky in football that we are being tested twice a week.

“One of the key things about keeping this virus away is being in the open air and that is where we are all day, so we are very fortunate.

“When we go to stadiums we won’t be in the same changing room. We will be in four or five different areas so that is an example of adaptation.”
