Football should not be stopped, says Neville

Tue 22 December 2020 | 10:16

After the rising of Covid-19 cases, there is a concern that the Premier League would be stopped again.

Gary Neville

is extremely against the stopping of Premier League again. The cases of Covid-19 in the UK are rising again and it caused a lot of doubts about continuing football. Football was stopped last season for 3 seasons and Premier League teams are still paying for it.

Gary Neville believes it is nonsense to stop the football again since

Premier League

is handling it perfectly.

The former England and Manchester United defender Neville told Sky Sports:

“I was a little bit nervous in lockdown about it coming back in the first instance. I didn’t feel we knew enough about what was going on.

“But a big, massive well done to the Premier League for the way in which they’ve conducted a safe return.

“It’s a nonsense now if football is ever suggested to be stopped.

That first lockdown was harsh,”

Neville said.

“There was a lot of uncertainty and anxiety about the virus at the time, it was something brand new in everyone’s lives.

“The idea that football came back was a release for people.

“Those first two or three weeks I was worried about the quality and speed of the games, because they were nowhere near the level of fitness you’d expect from them.

“There was a period when it got really good and the games have been good this season.

“They are producing good quality games, but there are more unpredictable results which makes it more interesting.”
