Do you remember Ferran Corominas? Footballically known as ‘Chorus’, some may have lost track of him, but the one who was a great hero of the Spanish with goals of capital importance in the Cup final and in the agonizing salvation of 2006 he continues to be active at 37 years old. Specifically, he has played in India since 2017, and this Wednesday he attended Mundo Deportivo to comment on how he lives, although fortunately from a distance, the fact that the Prime Minister last Tuesday Narendra Modi A 21-day confinement was decreed for all the inhabitants of what is the second most populous country in the world. “I've been here for about 10 days now (in Spain) because I was able to return after the Indian League ended a few weeks ago. Until then, we heard what was happening in the rest of the world, but in India there were no cases. And now it seems that the virus is coming and they have taken measures such as confining the entire country for 21 days. Think that we are talking about a country of more than 1,300 million inhabitants. The fear is in that circumstance since it is a virus that spreads so easily. For now it is not that there are many cases (less than 500 infected and 10 deaths recorded last Tuesday when the confinement was decreed), but it is clear that it is very dangerous, “he explained. Chorus nothing foreign to what is happening despite not being in India right now.
Such is the uncertainty generated by the coronavirus in a country like India, that the Choir itself is not clear about its immediate future. “I came to Goa three courses ago and since then I have been signing year by year. My contract has just ended. I had offers of both the Goa like other teams to continue in India, and The truth is that I am very comfortable there, but with all this now I prefer to wait to see how it evolves before deciding“, it states Chorus.
Football on the rise
Leaving aside the coronavirus, Chorus He also reviewed the differences in the reality of a footballer in India with respect to Europe, and commented how football is slowly making its way in a country where there is another sport that is almost a religion. “In India the national sport is cricket, but in recent years soccer has been greatly enhanced. For example, there on the street for me a lot more people than here“He confessed, and it should not be surprising considering that he has scored 18, 16 and 14 goals in the three seasons he has played defending the Goa, one of the main teams in the Indian Super League.
Chorus is together with others like Edu Bedia, Dimas Delgado, Albert Serran, Nili Perdomo, Marcos Tebar and a relatively long etcetera an example of ball migrants who found a place in India to continue enjoying soccer. And much less think about the withdrawal as long as the injuries respect him. But the coronavirus crisis, like any neighbor's son, has him in check in the short and medium term.
