Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero says players are ‘scared’ for football to return. Amid talk of a return, Man City talisman Aguero has said he and his peers are ‘scared’ to return to work, desperate to protect their families. Aguero believes when players do return to work, they will be ‘quite nervous’ but also ‘extra careful’.
Sergio Aguero said “The majority of players are scared because they have children and families. I’m scared, but I’m with my girlfriend here and I’m not going to be in contact with other people. I’m locked in my house and the only person I could infect is my girlfriend. They’re saying that there are people that have it and don’t have any symptoms but still infect you. That’s why I am here at home. Maybe I have the illness and I don’t even know. When one person is ill we will think ‘oh what’s happening here?'” he added. “I hope a vaccine will be found soon so that this all ends.”
Glenn Murray said “Face masks is going to be off-putting; it is not going to be natural, People will be ripping them off in games. It is quite farcical. I understand why people are desperate to get football on. It has to be done in a sensible way and in the right time and in a way that is going to keep everyone safe. There will be ambulances at training and games. Is it fair to take those from the NHS? I don’t know. It is not just two squads, there is a lot more involved and it puts more people at risk. I understand the public is desperate to get football back. But it is us that are going to be going out there and competing against other teams. We are not talking about guys in one community. We are talking about guys from all over the world who could be possibly carrying the disease. There are so many caveats. Everyone is in different situations. I have children at home. I wouldn’t want to jeopardise them. Some footballers have newly born children who might be more susceptible to getting the disease. Some are living with elderly parents. It is a really difficult situation to agree on.”
