Rooney explodes: “It seemed that the footballers in England were guinea pigs”

first_imgThe suspension of competitions due to the expansion of the pandemic will cause a restructuring of the calendars. The Derby County player proposes on The Times the following: “We would love to play until September if the season continues. It is our job. As long as we know we are safe to play and that it is a safe environment for spectators, we will play. The next World Cup will take place in November and December 2022, so you can really take advantage of this situation to say that we will finish the 2019-2020 season later, and then we will prepare for 2022 starting the next two seasons in winter … “. Wayne Rooney has exploded and has done so against the British football authorities for what he considers to be a clear lack of reaction to suspend matches due to the coronavirus crisis. Last Friday, after learning the positive for the COVID-19 from Mikel Arteta, Arsenal coach, the decision was made in the Islands to stop all football until April 4. “Why do we wait until Friday? Why did Mikel Arteta have to get sick for England to make the right choice?Asks the Derby County player in a column on The Times.“For the players, the staff and their families, the week has been worrying, one in which we have felt a lack of leadership from the government, the FA and the Premier League.

Until then, it almost seemed like footballers in England were treated like guinea pigs. “Rononey complained, assuring that he would never have forgiven the English authorities if a member of his family had contracted the virus through him. “The rest of the sport (tennis, Formula 1, rugby, golf, soccer in other countries) was closing and we were told to continue. I think many footballers were wondering: ‘Does this have to do with money?’. Fortunately, football finally made the right decision and we had to suspend. If people’s lives are in danger, it must come first. “last_img
