Coronavirus: Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder says internationals should stop during pandemic

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder believes international football should be curtailed amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Wilder was asked his opinion on the issue at his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of the Blades’ Premier League game against Fulham on Sunday, where he revealed the club has a Covid-19 issue with a player who has returned from the international break.

“We have got a potential issue with one of our players. I can’t confirm or deny whether he will be available for the weekend, we are still working with the authorities,” Wilder said.

“I have that view [that international football should be halted] if I’m honest. I think the situation at the moment is pretty difficult for everybody. It’s one-and-a-half metres distancing in one country and then two metres in another country and you’ve got boys flying about all over the place.

“I’m sure the international scene and the FAs of certain countries will survive through this financially.”
