‘No Russian roulette with British footballers’ health’


This 18 May 2020 British TV video says about itself:

Troy Deeney Worries Footballers Will Be Blamed for Wasting Covid-19 Tests | Good Morning Britain

Today Premier League clubs are expected to vote on whether to return to non-contact training. Watford captain Troy Deeney says he is not even talking about football at the moment and won’t put his family at risk.

Dutch NOS radio says that at Watford Football Club, three people are infected with COVID-19. There are also cases at Burnley and an unnamed other club. They write (translated):

Watford captain Troy Deeney revealed yesterday that he will not resume training. He doesn’t want to risk infecting his son with the coronavirus. His five-month-old baby is struggling with breathing problems. “I have already lost my father, grandmother and grandfather. Almost everyone I care about. That is more important to me than a few pence,” said Deeney in the podcast Talk The Talk. “You only need one person to get infected. I don’t want to take that virus home.”
