Nuno Espirito Santo Fears Coronavirus will get Worse
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has expressed his fears for the impact of Covid-19 on English football and fears it will only get worse. Four Premier League and 52 EFL matches have been postponed this season because of the coronavirus.
In addition, Southampton’s FA Cup third-round tie at home to Shrewsbury was called off, and a coronavirus outbreak at Aston Villa has put in doubt Friday’s tie against Liverpool.
According to Nuno Espirito Santo, he said: “Unfortunately it is going to happen more.” “Just look at the news. The expectations are terrible. It is going to get worse.”
The Villa outbreak had not become public knowledge when Nuno Espirito Santo made his observation because of his side’s FA Cup third-round meeting with Crystal Palace at Molineux on Friday.
On Tuesday, the Premier League reported that 40 players and club staff had tested positive for coronavirus over the previous week. The record is the league’s highest weekly total since regular player testing for the virus began.
Nuno also said: “In football, we live in a bubble and don’t always feel what society is feeling.” “But it is tough for everyone. Players are only human and the rise in cases is scary.” The manager is not happy that games are still been allowed to go by the English FA despite the hike in the virus.
