Even famous football players get bored when they are forced to stay in their homes to remain healthy as COVID-19 rampages through Europe and beyond. The Premier League has been suspended indefinitely and Melwood has been shut down for the time being, and the players have taken to social media to entertain themselves and us.
Let’s take a look at some of the way the players are keeping themselves occupied.
Alisson Becker, who has arguably the safest hands in the league, took the #safehand challenge and went on Instagram to show us how to correctly wash our hands.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and his girlfriend Perrie Edwards, of Little Mix fame, kept themselves entertained through...choreographed dancing. You do what you gotta do, I guess. And their moves are pretty funky.
James Milner milked his boring persona by poking fun at himself as he responded to Edwards’ viral Instagram post with one of himself rationing out his teabags.
Hey @Alex_OxChambo Barrels of laughs here in the Milner household as well - rationing the tea bags for the week #crazydays#somuchtogetonwith#notgotthemovestocompete pic.twitter.com/WLDAJjyHOc— James Milner (@JamesMilner) March 15, 2020
In the Firmino household, Bobby and his partner had a little singalong time, crooning a religious song together while he played the piano.
Keep us entertained, Reds. We’re going to be stuck behind our screens for a while, and I have a feeling we’re going to need some cheering up.
