Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has advised the club’s fans to ensure they follow the government’s guidelines as they fight the Coronavirus pandemic.
The manager, alongside Casey Stoney, the women team’s coach, urged all fans to stick to ‘stay at home’ message by the government in a bid to control the spread of the virus.
Here is part of the letter by the two managers as posted via the club’s official Twitter account:
“Firstly, on behalf of everyone at Manchester United, our thoughts are with anyone who has been directly affected by this virus and everyone dealing with the impact of it. All our gratitude goes to the healthcare staff working on the frontline of the NHS here in the UK and in hospitals around the world at this particularly difficult time.
“We are all having to adjust – fans, players, coaches – to a new way of living, without our fix of football, although we all agree that everyone’s health and wellbeing at this time is much more important.
“These are unprecedented times and we now need to all come together to combat this global pandemic. It is important for everyone to follow government guidelines to help control the spread of COVID-19, wherever you are in the world. That’s what we’re doing at Manchester United, with all our players now training at home, following individual programmes and using technology to stay in touch with our medical, fitness and coaching staff.
“We’re all looking forward to the football season resuming when it is safe to do so. Until then, we need to be united in looking after ourselves, our families and supporting our local communities.
“Stay safe, stay home and we hope to see you all soon,”
The virus has crippled major sporting activities across all continents as the world moves to control further spread.
All major league across Europe have been suspended with some other tournaments like EURO 2020 postponed.
