Pep Guardiola has strongly advocated that football should shut down should the CoVID cases keep rising again around Europe!
“It’s difficult,” Guardiola said. “I know the prime minister is taking the decision because the situation is getting worse. It happened in Spain, Germany and France. Everywhere.
“So the virus is still there. Maybe people say it is stronger. I think the world of football cannot be an exception in what is happening in society.
“So if we have to play, we will play. But we don’t want to be different from the rest of society when they have to close restaurants or close whatever.
“It’s a position in which I am not involved. I want to be safe. I want to keep well for myself, for my family, my friends, for all England, all of the UK. But honestly I don’t know.”
“It’s not a joke. It’s serious. If he says stay at home, you have to stay at home. If he says don’t do this, we don’t do it,” Guardiola added.
“Because it’s not fair for half of the population doing what we have to do and the prime minister says this, and the rest of the people do whatever they want.
“So we have to be conscious – the reality is tough, it’s difficult. If we have to stop, we are going to stop.
“If we have to play, because they decide it’s good for society or for I don’t know, just be alert, be careful, take maximum consciousness of the dangers of the situation in which we are living.”
