The World Health Organisation (WHO) has reportedly urged football authorities to suspend all football matches until the end of next season, 2021. This is coming on the back of the rapid increase in the spread of the novel Coronavirus across the world, with confirmed cases topping 2 million.
According to Italian paper, La Repubblica, WHO during a conference call with UEFA, said it is prefererable for all matches to be put on hold until at least the end of next season, in 18 months time.
He stressed that the organization is concerned about negating a second wave of the pandemic.
The organization further revealed that they are prepared to go extreme lengths to ensure that there is not a second wave of coronavirus.
This new development would unarguably plunge a a lot of football clubs into financial instability. However, some teams have introduced a pay cut on their players to lessen the financial strain.
