“And a weekend without Premier League is like watching a movie without pop corn” John Correa/ London united former assistant captain and Liverpool fan.
“It was so frustrating when I heard that my team’s coach Mikel Arteta of Arsenal football club was infected. But I thank God that he is cured now and will be back with the boys.” Alieu Darboe/Arsenal fan
“Actually, it’s painful as a football lover for the game to be stopped because we cannot do without it. But again, we cannot do without good health and we also need to understand that The Gambia is vulnerable because we are not well equipped to fight the Covid-19. So the only thing we can do to protect ourselves is by stopping public gatherings.” Augustus Bass/Former Interior FC captain
“We are in a situation where in everything has come to a standstill. What we believe and love is shut down so it can’t be okay. Life without football is just so boring.” Abou Jallow/Red Hawks FC assistant coach
“This virus is making life so boring for us football fans. It’s pathetic, it’s really, really pathetic. Football makes us stress free. But now we are sitting. No football, nothing. It is stressful. We hoping that God will make an improvement and our football will come back to life.” Francis Lissa Hindowa/Chelsea FC fan
