EFL chief talks about the importance of following COVID-19 guidelines.

EFL chief executive says that there will be extreme pressure on football if clubs keep breaking the rules and ignoring the guidelines of on limiting the spread of the virus.

Football matches continues despite the outbreak in Britain but there are strict rules guidelines to avoid the spread of the virus. Some clubs and players have been ignorant about these guidelines and now EFL chief has warned the clubs of what could happen if they keep breaking the rules about COVID-19.

“Throughout the pandemic, football has provided a glimmer of hope for many millions of people affected by restrictions but we all understand the scrutiny the game remains under and we will come under extreme governmental pressure if we continue to flout the rules,”

he said in a letter to clubs


“While football is permitted to continue the actions of all participants will be clearly under the microscope, whether this be in technical areas, dugouts, or in relation to general behavior and interaction between players on the pitch and staff off it,

“Any failure to do so may result in action taken by the league individually against the relevant person where it is appropriate and/or against the club itself.”

The clubs are already struggling with the problems caused by the compact schedule but there could be more restrictions if they keep ignoring the limitations.
