Erik Lamela sends touching message to NHS staff
Tottenham Hotspur star Erik Lamela has taken to Instagram to thank the medical staff for their selfless contribution as the coronavirus threat looms large.
With football currently suspended, at least until April 30th, Tottenham players have been given a leave of absence until next month. Each player has been given an individual program to follow, to ensure that they stay in shape for when the season starts.
The Argentine star took time out of his schedule to post a truly heartwarming message to those who are at the forefront in the battle against the virus.
He started off by revealing what he has been up to in self-isolation before going on to ask people to respect the situation we are all in. He urged people to follow the government’s directives and stay safe.
Lamela then went on to bring attention to the excellent job our health workers are doing in combating the situation.
“From my heart, thank you very much.”
With the pandemic spreading across the world, life as we know it has come to a halt. It is no different for footballers who have been forced to go into self-isolation as we try to get a grip on our responsive measures.
Gratitude for the selfless
In times like these, it is very important to give credit to those who work tirelessly to keep us fit and alive. Lamela’s words of gratitude are something we all must voice to let the first responders know that we appreciate and understand their efforts.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered stringent regulations countrywide in a bid to stop the spread of the deadly pandemic. The government’s strict new rules came after more than 8,000 people in the UK were confirmed to have the virus, while 422 people have died.
