Huddersfield Town Captain Christopher Schindler caught up with #HTTV to discuss what he’s been doing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With games postponed and no fix date to return back to training, Town’s defender has been working hard to keep fit at home in the anticipation of what might be to come.

Schindy explained what this period away from the rigours of Sky Bet Championship football has been like for him.

“It feels like the summer break to be fair, the period of time between the seasons, but it’s an odd feeling because it’s uncertain what the future will bring; this is the toughest part about it.

“I’m trying to stay fit, conditioning wise I’ve been on the bike and running on the pitch.

“Next week we will start bringing the ball back a little bit to do some technical drills, to make sure we don’t play like Schindy all the time!

“I always try to see the positive out of everything and to make the best out of the situation at the moment, so I’m keeping fit and be prepared for when we go back to training.”

This period has given Town’s Captain the chance, however, to spend more time with his family. With schools closed, he’s become and father and a teacher looking after his young daughter.

“Mainly I’ve been home-schooling with my daughter, which is more challenging that it should be!

“She’s four so I shouldn’t have the problems I’m having, but it keeps you occupied. You have a purpose, can help and its good fun sometimes.

“We do reading, spelling, it’s good schooling for me as well as I’m not a native speaker.

“Plus, I realised that my daughter’s English is better than mine!”

Many supporters will have been in the same boat at Christopher Schindler over the last few weeks.

Town’s Captain celebrated his 30th birthday at the end of April but had to dampen down the celebrations that he’d planned back in his home country.

“It was different to what I expected it to be. As it was a bigger birthday, I wouldn’t say I planned a big party, but with the season being finished on May 2nd, there would’ve been something planned in Germany, but it all became different.

“We have to take it for now, see how things develop, and then we will find a time and place to celebrate it properly. Maybe we make it next year.

“It was a bit difficult to be fair not having family or friends round and it being quiet, but there’s nothing you can do at the moment.

“We hope that changes soon and we go back to some kind of normality.”
