Defender Benjamin Pavard from German record champion FC Bayern Munich says he suffered from depression during the peak phase of the corona pandemic.

'I don't like the word depressed, but that's how it was.

I've opened up to others and today I feel a lot better," the French international told the newspaper "Le Parisien".

"I'm a person like everyone else, and even if I have a super nice house with a weight room, I needed contact with others," said the 26-year-old in retrospect, describing his emotional world in quarantine at the time: "I woke up, had no appetite.

I tried to stay busy, to cook, to watch series.

But Netflix is ​​nice for two minutes.”

It was difficult for everyone during that time of contact restrictions, "for me too," said Pavard: "It wasn't right in my head.

In the beginning you tell yourself it's nothing, it'll pass.

But if you notice that it is stubborn that you go to training without a smile, then you have to act.« In this difficult situation, however, he »grew as a man«, he said.
