Dr. Manuel Arroyo, one of the members of the Granada club's medical services, explained that this specific plan goes hand in hand with the physical exercises carried out by each footballer at home and consists of “nutritional recommendations according to the type of training that is done every day. “

“The main objective is that there is no loss of muscle mass in the players, which is what we know scientifically that occurs in this type of situation,” said the doctor of the Atletico team in statements provided by the club.

The Granada doctor recalled that there are “many cases of people who have been detained for many years and have managed to make their confinements periods of reflection and improvement”, so he sees it possible to get out of it “even in better conditions than a person had before it. “
