CoronaVirus Causing Issues in Football TooPeter Houghton
As CoronaVirus threatens to take over the world, our football clubs are taking odd bits of unilateral action to protect themselves and their assets.
Last week we saw Manchester United instruct new-signing Odion Ighalo to avoid the warm-weather training camp in Marbella, as he had just made the move from Chinese Club, Shanghai Greenland Shenua.
Over the weekend we learned that our colleagues at Crystal Palace FC have ordered a deep-clean of Selhurst Park to try to ensure that the virus doesn’t affect them or their players and fans.
As more and more stories of infestation and death arrive, I suppose we all must be on our toes as this is transportable by people who don’t even know they are transporting it!!
