Danny Rose says "F*** morale" as he hits out at Premier League return plan

Danny Rose has been backed by fans after becoming the latest Premier League star to insist football should not return with people dying from the coronavirus.

Tottenham ’s England star said: “The government's saying bring back football to boost the morale of the nation. I don't give a f**k about the nation's morale. People's lives are at risk!

"Football shouldn't be spoken about till numbers have dropped massively. It's b******s!”

Supporters praised the defender on social media for saying in public what many believe to be the views of players in private. More than 32,000 Covid-19 deaths have now been recorded in the UK, which remains under lockdown.

Rose’s comments, made on Monday night during an Instagram Live, follow those of a string of top-flight players including Manchester City ’s Sergio Aguero, who claimed "the majority of players are scared".

Glenn Murray last week dismissed suggestions of players wearing masks and has voiced his fears about jeopardising his children and newborns of fellow players.

West Ham ’s Aaron Cresswell and Arsenal ’s Matteo Guendouzi have voiced similar sentiments, while outside the Premier League Derby’s Wayne Rooney and Leyton Orient’s Jobi McAnuff agree.

The government have given the green light for sporting events to be held behind closed doors from June 1, but the Premier League remains split between clubs who want games played home and away and others who want them held at neutral venues.
