Arsenal’s Spanish coach Michael Arteta has called on football officials and the government not to return to hosting games without the presence of fans.
The British News Agency (PA Media) reported that a significant increase in the number of victims of the growing corona virus in the English Premier League led to calls to stop the competition, but this was rejected after a meeting of all clubs and interested parties. , Which saw the presence of all twenty Premier League clubs.
As the tournament is scheduled to continue, another opportunity arises on the horizon to host football matches without spectators.
The UK may follow the example of the governments of Wales and Scotland, and after the data they released on Tuesday, drastic measures related to sporting events to combat the spread of the corona will take effect from December 26.
Before confronting Norwich on Sunday, Arteta said: “Please, we do not want to go back to that state because we tried it, it’s a process we do not like, so we hope it does not happen.”
He added, “Football is different. Participating with people and having fans on the field.”
“When that doesn’t happen, it’s a completely different game and the competition is lost, and this is not the same football we want,” the Spanish coach continued.
