Reina believes he had coronavirus, concerned for general public

Aston Villa goalkeeper Pepe Reina knows his privilege, and worries for those in a worse spot than him in the battle against coronavirus.

For what it’s worth, Reina believes he’s had COVID-19 thanks to a conversation with doctors and that he’s come out the other side.

Reina was sick and said his symptoms matched coronavirus but he wasn’t tested due to the lack of severity of his symptoms.

From Marca:

“It was a different kind of week as I had to take precautions to avoid infecting those living with me.

“We’re privileged people, with a big house and a garden. I’m worried about the people who live in a 70m² flat with two kids.”

Reina has been pretty good since returning to the Premier League on loan from Napoli. He’s made 23 saves including a penalty stop during his six appearances for the Villans, who are 1-1-4 with him on the field including four-consecutive league losses.
