Brighton’s Football Manager Graham Potter has voiced concerns as the COVID-19 surge in Europe is infecting players, staff, and the general populace once again. Potter has displayed skepticism about football action continuing amid the flurry of COVID-19 cases. The Brighton management also asked the Premier League to abort the game against Wolverhampton but to no avail and Potter’s comments came in the wake of the loss against the Wolves. Potter’s concerns are on point because even USA’s NBA, NHL, and various other leagues have seen games being postponed due to COVID-19 threat and some sports analysts are urging for a break to cope up with the COVID-19 situation.
We all want football to continue, want life to continue as best as we can but health is the most important thing. We've got some issues ourselves and this week has been a little bit disturbing in terms of how quickly we've been affected. If that carries on then we'll have to have some serious thought(Regarding suspension).
