Some Nottingham Forest fans have been responding to a clip of midfielder Tiago Silva keeping himself in shape during the mid-season break.
However, as there is still lots of uncertainty about the Government’s next steps towards tackling the illness, there is a chance that football may not take place on the EFL’s estimated date.
Forest players have to keep themselves busy somehow after they were made to self-isolate following the news that club owner Evangelos Marinakis contracted the virus. The club’s official Twitter account uploaded a video of Silva completing running drills, as he continues his recovery from appendicitis.
Will Tiago Silva be at Forest next season?
With this in mind, some supporters reacted by joking about the slow-motion effect on the footage and insinuating that Silva has lost some pace.

Others were supportive of Silva as he strives towards full fitness. With the remainder of the season still up in the air, who knows whether we will see the 26-year-old play again this season.
Really underrated signing. Been absolutely quality this season 👏🏻
