EPL football Players warned over goals celebration by PFA…
As COVID-19 cases are increasing in England, the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) has reminded players to be cautious when celebrating goals.
Because of the pandemic, the Premier League, Women’s Super League, English Football League and FA Cup, both men’s and women’s, have all had games delayed this season.
“We’ve sent a message to all our members saying: ‘You have done a great job, you’ve kept the game going, and you deserve a lot of credit, but it’s important you keep to the protocols,’” PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor told the Times.
“Always abide by what you’re being told by doctors and medical staff with regard to the protocols about keeping your distance and the hygiene that’s required.
“I understand with the celebration of a goal it’s difficult to just put the ball in the back of the net and act as though nothing has happened.
“It’s that adrenaline rush… that’s what the game is all about, but that’s part and parcel of the process, so they’ll be reminded.”
