“You’re starting to be scared”
More than the injury itself, the ex-Bavarian has experienced great moments of doubt, about which he also expresses himself. “What if at some point I lose hope of getting back to my best level?” It’s something that comes to mind. I often thought of coming back, but my knee wouldn’t let it. “
“Of course you get scared, but I’ve seen this before when I was injured. You start telling yourself that you will never be the same again. But in the end, your body gets used to it and regains its shape. I think it’s all a matter of time and work ”.
