Brentford winger Sergi Canos believes it is not worth putting each other at risk by playing again this season despite explaining he misses being out on the pitch. 


The 23-year-old has had to experience being away from the game longer than most as he is still recovering from a serious knee injury he sustained against Nottingham Forest back in October. 


After returning to outdoor training in February, Canos was ready to play a part in Brentford’s push for promotion in their final few fixtures but the coronavirus pandemic ruined his plans. 


Canos has expressed his scepticism about playing again this season but the winger has revealed the one thing he misses most. 


“I miss football so much and this situation has given me the opportunity to prepare myself to come back this season,” the former Barcelona trainee told the Independent. 


“But after you think: is it worth it? Is it worth playing this season? Is it worth putting people at risk again? It’s very difficult. 


“I’m training on my own in the park and I think: should I really be doing this? It would be great to play in the Premier League, but at the moment if feels far away. But I have to train because if the situation gets better and we go back to playing, I want to be ready and be the Sergi Canos I was before the injury.


“Anyone could say they miss scoring goals, the feeling of playing on a Saturday, hearing the fans sing your name. But what do I miss the most? I miss every day; every training session, because that’s the opportunity to feel like I’m footballer again. To do what I love.”


While the current situation has allowed Canos to fully recover from his injury in Spain but current lockdown rules have meant he has had to be apart from his mother and sister who reside in Liverpool. 


“When the situation in Spain was becoming very heavy, we were still training and I remember the doctors and physios just saying this can’t happen [for much longer]. We are going to have to all stay at home soon,” he says. 


“My mum and sister could have come here, but I’m scared to bring the virus home if I’m going to the shop or the park.”
