Cristi Chivu’s second life…

The journalists of ‘Gazzetta dello Sport’ daily have interviewed Cristi Chivu, the skipper of the Romanian national football team, at the end of last week for the first time after the terrible head injury he recently suffered during the game that Inter played against Chievo.

‘I can tell you I am living a second life. After the surgery I wanted to see the incident on TV. My wife was terribly frightened when she saw the scar. I wasn’t afraid at all, I was only horrified of the fact that I might not see my girl,’ Chivu told ‘Gazzetta dello Sport.’

The skipper expressed his optimism in what concerns his comeback on the pitch, hoping to return to the game at the end of March. ‘I hope to return as soon as possible, I would like to play somewhere around the end of March in order to win the Italian title and the Champions League,’ the Romanian international player concluded. Chivu also announced that soon he will wear a carbon-fiber protection mask that costs EUR 700 and was specially designed in order to protect the fullback from other injuries.

Romanian international player Cristian Chivu was injured during the first half of the Serie A game that pitted Inter Milan against Chievo Verona (final score 1-0) on January 6. The incident occurred during the first half’s first minute of extra time, with the Romanian fullback being taken to hospital. Chivu had a surgical operation in order to have the haematoma removed.
