Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has asked for the cancellation of Premier League fixtures.
Suspending games is better than playing behind closed doors, as coronavirus continues to affect sporting events, the Spaniard says.
The government’s allowed football matches to proceed as usual in the UK so far.
Premier League agreed on Tuesday to move the City’s clash with Arsenal on Wednesday at the Etihad Stadium amid threats of spreading coronavirus.
Officials in Italy have postponed Serie A games and Spanish league matches will be held for two weeks without fans.
“I would not love to play matches in the Premier League or Champions League or the cups without the people. But we are going to follow the instructions of the government.
“Everybody around the world is involved in that and we just follow what we have to do and follow the instructions,” Guardiola said according to ESPN.
