Trying to keep things as normal as possible

26 March 2020

Imps’ manager Michael Appleton has spoken of the importance of us all to have a good routine in these difficult times for all.

Whilst the players have their training schedules to adhere to whilst they’re all at home, Michael says it’s just as important for him to stay in a routine of exercise too whilst planning for when football gets back underway and of course the importance of trying to ensure everyone's safety by staying at home.

“I’ve just tried to get into a routine,” He said.

“I’m making sure I get up and have breakfast before then getting into some exercise. I’ve got some small weights at home and I can do some circuit training and occupy myself.”

Whilst there is a pause in football, the City boss will be prepared for what’s to come no matter what the outcome is on the 2019/20 season and beyond as he stresses although the office space maybe different at home, is continuing his work as normal as possible. However, whilst decisions will be made around the future of football when the time is right, Michael urges all to do what they can to help the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and slow the further spread of the virus.

“The other work away from the club continues, so we’re discussing players, watching games which we have access to and generally staying up to date with any information on players. I speak daily with Jez, Liam and other staff members at the club as well as making sure I keep in touch with the players too.

“There’s not a lot more we can do. There are obviously a lot of questions that need to be answered still but they’re not the most important ones for the country right now.

He continued: “I can’t stress enough that the most important thing for us all right now is that we all follow the advice of the experts and the government to make sure we’re all doing what we can to help things improve for everyone.”
