Players treated like ‘guinea pigs’ over coronavirus: Rooney

Wayne Rooney is unhappy with the treatment of players over the coronavirus While the rest of European football was shutting down due to the growing threat of the global pandemic, Rooney is angry it took several days for the Premier League and Football League to postpone their matches until April 3. It was only when Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive for the virus on Friday that football’s UK governing bodies called a temporary halt to the season. Rooney, currently playing for second tier Derby, felt they should have acted quicker and the former England captain said he would “never forgive” the authorities if his family fell ill as a result. “Why did we wait until Friday? Why did it take Mikel Arteta to get ill for the game in England to do the right thing?” Rooney wrote in the Sunday Times. “For players, staff and their families it has been a worrying week – one in which you felt a lack of leadership from the government and from the FA and Premier League. “After the emergency meeting, at last the right decision was made – until then it almost felt like footballers in England were being treated like guinea pigs. “I know how I feel. If any of my family get infected through me because I’ve had to play when it’s not safe, and they get seriously ill, I’d have to think hard about ever playing again. I would never forgive the authorities.” Many matches at non-league level were going ahead as scheduled in Britain this weekend and Rooney believes Prime Minister Boris Johnson “dodged” the issue by letting football make its own decision about playing on. The 34-year-old claimed money was key to the authorities’ reluctance to cancel games. “The rest of sport – tennis, Formula One, rugby, golf, football in other countries – was closing down and we were being told to carry on,” Rooney said. “I think a lot of footballers were wondering, ‘Is it something to do with money being involved in this?’” Once the virus is under control, Rooney wants a radical schedule shake-up which could see the current season being concluded as late as September, and the next two kicking off in winter-time as a result.last_img read more

Rodwell out to prove himself

first_img He added: “It’s a fresh start for everyone and we will all be on it. First game of next season everyone will be flying, and we will do our best to prove ourselves to the manager. I am a great believer in my ability but I’ve not had the chance to prove it. “I am back for one game after 10 games out and it’s always hard. You are never match fit and it’s hard to produce. You need a good run of games.” Rodwell has spent more than four months on the sidelines since his £12million move from Goodison Park last August, mostly because of hamstring injuries. But the twice-capped England international underlined his ability with both goals in City’s otherwise disappointing season-ending 3-2 Barclays Premier League loss to Norwich on Sunday. Rodwell’s second goal was particularly impressive, not least because he fully tested his hamstring as he sprinted onto a long ball from Yaya Toure and finished expertly. It certainly did not go unnoticed by England boss Roy Hodgson, who named him in his squad for the upcoming friendlies against Republic of Ireland and Brazil. Rodwell said: “It’s always good to end on a high – it’s been a frustrating season but on a personal note it was a good game for me. We could have done with a different result, but I am happy. “Once I am fit, I can do what I did for that second goal, and I can do it for 90 minutes. I have proven that. It’s just getting games under my belt, getting match fitness and hopefully next season I can do it a bit more.” Jack Rodwell is determined to ensure Manchester City fans see the best of him next season. Press Associationcenter_img The former Everton midfielder is hoping to make a fresh start after having his first year at the Etihad Stadium ruined by injury. He did at least finish the campaign strongly – and was unexpectedly rewarded with a place in the latest England squad – and now he wants to maintain the momentum. The 2013-14 campaign could be a crucial one for the 22-year-old as City also head into a new era under a new manager. Rodwell said: “It’s all about the future now. Obviously a new manager will come in and everyone is intrigued to see who that is going to be.” last_img read more

Massimiliano Allegri plays down Manchester United link

first_img “I have a contract running until 2017,” he told the Corriere dello Sport during his preview press conference for Friday’s game at Lazio. “I’m happy here and I’m focused on Juventus’ objectives. “They are much more important than these rumours which come from elsewhere. “In a month the transfer window will be open, so that’ll please you and you’ll be able to move on! “It’ll be a difficult match at Lazio and our mission there will be to move up another place in the table.” The Juventus head coach won the Serie A title at the end of his first season in Turin, also guiding the Bianconeri to the Champions League final where they were beaten by Barcelona. Recent reports in Italy have suggested the 48-year-old might be approached to replace Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford but Allegri insisted he is committed to Juve for at least one more campaign.
