Forced to rest due to the coronavirus epidemic, Nicolas Pallois does not seem worried as he looks to keep fit, but the giant defender has a great deal of respect for those on the front line.

Like his teammates at FC Nantes and the vast majority of the French population, Nicolas Pallois is forced to remain confined to his home town due to the coronavirus epidemic. A period during which the 32-year-old Nantes defender is trying to keep fit.

"It's important to follow the instructions and to respect the programme in order to keep the pace," he explained on FCN's official website on Thursday. "We don't yet know the date of the restart, so it's up to us to prepare properly."

Hats off

Moreover, the former Bordeaux resident was not alarmist, despite a very difficult health situation and more than 1,300 deaths caused in France by Covid-19.

"There has been a lot of drama, that's for sure. I'm not necessarily afraid of it but we're being careful because tomorrow anything can happen," Pallois estimated, before saluting the work being done by health care workers. We're lucky to be able to make a living from our passion, but for others their passion is to be there to save lives and they have a massive workload. We really have to respect the rules of confinement, quarantine and isolation."
