The Italian spoke with the ex-Spain goalkeeper about his feelings regarding coronavirus, which he has experienced in China and is now seeing the pandemic spread across the world. 

Cannavaro was especially critical with the attitude of some people in Europe, who have not done their bit to help stop or at least slow the spread of Covid-19. 

"The bad thing we have in Europe is that people do not understand that they must stay at home," the World Cup-winning defender told Casillas. 

The coach spoke about how it's been in China: "Imagine a city with 30 million people completely empty. It was like a film, but it's the only way to stop the virus." 

He also spoke about the situation in Italy, the centre of the European outbreak: "It's really bad. I see people out on the streets. The problem is the hospitals, there are too many people and not enough beds for everyone."  

Cannavaro also complained about how some countries have managed the crisis: "They had the chance to close countries, to close cities and they haven't done it. It's a shame for Europe. They should have closed everything."
