Footballers oppose Russian roulette with their lives

This 2017 video from England says about itself:

Danny Rose | The Ultimate Compilation | Tottenham 2016-17 (HD)

Video of some of the best passes, assists, tackles, interceptions, goals (you name it), from one of our excellent full-backs, Danny Rose.

From daily The Morning Star un Britain today:

ENGLAND and Tottenham defender Danny Rose has again criticised the level of punishment that countries receive for racist abuse, describing it as “bollocks”.

And England defender says that people are at risk if league returns

In an Instagram Live discussion with musician Don E, the left-back, currently on loan at Newcastle, said that he would try and “write someone off” if racism occurred when his side was losing a match.

It was just one of a number of issues that the outspoken Rose talked freely about. On the prospect of a Premier League resumption, he admitted: “I don’t give a fuck about the nation’s morale, people’s lives are at risk.”

A reaction to British Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson wanting to play Russian roulette with the health and lives of footballers; and of workers.

Rose has spoken out before about the racist abuse he received when playing for England in Montenegro last March, when he and several team-mates were subjected to monkey chants.

The Montenegro FA received a €20,000 (£17,253) fine and were ordered to play a game behind closed doors; Rose says not enough is being done. …

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

Rose, a 29-time England international and hired by Newcastle from Tottenham Hotspur, was particularly angry about a remark by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. He said that the return of football would provide a “much-needed boost to the nation”.

32,000 corona deaths

“I don’t give a fuck about the nation’s morale, people’s lives are at risk”, Rose fumed in conversation with singer Don-E via Instagram Live. “There shouldn’t even be talk of a return of football until the COVID-19 numbers drop.”

The coronavirus pandemic has caused many victims in the United Kingdom. In fact, with over 32,000 deaths and 223,000 infections, the British are the hardest hit country in Europe.

On Sunday, Raheem Sterling also expressed his concerns about a restart of the competition. The Manchester City and English team attacker insisted that the decision about a return of the Premier League should not be made just for football reasons.

The intention is to rapidly complete the remaining 92 Premier League matches on neutral ground from June. Players would be tested extensively, but club doctors do not think they can guarantee the health of the footballers.

Aston Villa and England defender Tyrone Mings and Norwich City talent Todd Cantwell also made themselves heard on social media. Mings with a sarcastic post on Twitter, while Cantwell once again pointed out that footballers are human too.
