Tottenham star Toby Alderweireld posts message to supporters amid coronavirus outbreak

Tottenham Hotspur star Toby Alderweireld has posted a message to supporters on Twitter after the Premier League confirmed that no games will be played until Saturday, April 3.

The decision comes after club chiefs met on Friday morning to discuss whether this weekend’s fixtures should be played. The result of said meeting sees all English fixtures cancelled for the next fortnight.

An announcement made on Thursday night, by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, stated that the Premier League and other professional football fixtures would take place this weekend. But Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s diagnosis has changed that.

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has also been confirmed has having the virus, but he told fans that he has recovered from it. Posting on Twitter, Alderweireld has urged supporters to remain safe and healthy.

 

TBR’s view – Could Tottenham benefit from suspension?

Yes. Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are both out injured until at least April, and the belief was that both players would struggle to return with more than a couple of games to play.

But with the suspension of the Premier League cancelling out Spurs’ next two fixtures – against Manchester United and West Ham United – Kane, Son and even the likes of Moussa Sissoko and Steven Bergwijn could return to feature.
