John Toshack spent nine days in intensive care back in February, as he battled a nearly fatal bout of COVID.
Speaking with Marca, the 73-year-old said: “When I was 24 years old, at Liverpool, I had a muscle problem. They told me it would be difficult to play again. But I won three leagues, a European Cup and a UEFA Cup . Then, I injured my ankle. That was it.”
“It’s been terrible [with COVID]. I’ve been away [in ICU] for nine days. Look, in nine days you can lose a league. But I won mine.”
