Pep Guardiola urges fans to wear masks

Josep Guardiola, DT of Manchester City, asked the fans of the Premier League to use the masks inside the stadiums

ENGLAND — Pep Guardiola, technician of the Manchester City, has urged supporters to wear masks in stadiums to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Under the recently introduced UK Government Plan B regulations, fans are now required to show proof of double vaccination or negative proof of Covid-19 to attend the games of the Premier league.

However, it has been speculated that the authorities could go further and force the games to return behind closed doors, as happened during the project restart and for most of last season, amid the increase in the number of cases in England.

Guardiola, who lost his mother to the virus last year, doesn’t want that to happen again, but thinks people could be doing more.

When asked about the possibility of games being played without fans again, the coach of the Manchester City He said, “I wouldn’t love it. You can’t imagine how different it is to play with people than without people. It doesn’t compare.”

“In the end we played, behind closed doors so that the world soccer economy would survive, for the broadcasters. Thanks to that, we continued to collect our salaries and we were able to play soccer for the people.

“Hopefully it doesn’t happen again, but there are cases all over the world. These people go to stadiums and they can pollute. There are people in stadiums who don’t wear masks, and that’s what surprises me the most. You walk down the street, you go to the big shopping centers, to places to buy gifts for the family and nobody wears masks, “said Guardiola.
