Toby Alderweireld gives his verdict on Premier League suspension

Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld has taken to Twitter to have his say on the current situation following the coronavirus outbreak.

The Premier League had initially intimated that all fixtures this week would take place as arranged. They were forced to make a call following news that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Chelsea player Callum Hudson-Odoi both tested positive for the virus. This was in addition to Brendan Rodgers’ admission that three of his players were in self-isolation.

Following these revelations, the decision was taken for football matches at all levels to be suspended until April 4 at the earliest. The suspensions extend not to the men and women’s league but also to all academy fixtures.

The announcement went on to say that given the scenario, there is no other option but to suspend the league. It went on to say that all parties are committed to trying to complete this season’s domestic fixtures, and options are being explored on how to do so.

A necessary decision

The Tottenham defender stressed that the welfare of the fans, players, and staff should always take precedence.

He implored everyone to follow and respect the guidelines and pointers given to them so that this situation can be overcome at the earliest with the least of problems. Alderweireld also sent his best wishes to the people already afflicted by the virus.

Tottenham also welcomed back Moussa Sissoko to first-team training. The delay could prove beneficial for us as it will give Ben Davies and Harry Kane the time to return to first-team action.

Tottenham are seven points behind 4th-placed Chelsea. The return of some of our star players will benefit us in the final run-up for the Champions League spots.
