Olympique Lyonnais midfielder Bruno Guimaraes is using the time without football to learn French in order to speed up his integration.
Speaking to OL club media the January signing said: "I don't speak much French but I'm learning. During this time I'm following the training programme set out by fitness coach Paolo Rongoni. I do abdmoninal work, stretching and run in a limited space. Outside of that, I'm playing a lot of video games and I'm learning French in order to integrate fast."
Guimaraes has impressed in his five appearances for OL since joining from Paranaense for a fee of over 20 million euros. The 22-year-old's smooth midfield work made him an instant hit with fans and the star of Brazil's successful bid to qualify for the Olympics was a major factor behind Lyon's 1-0 home win over Juventus in the Champions League Round of 16.
Guimaraes added: "It's essential that people stay at home. Of course I'm missing the pitches and matches. That's what I love doing. But we know it's for the collective good that we must stay at home. I repeat to you that this will pass quickly and we'll all be back together again soon."
