Inter wingback Ashley Young has claimed Italy leads by “great example to the world” and insisted “football doesn’t count” in times like these.
The former England international arrived at the Nerazzurri in January and was living in one of the first red zones of Italy in Lombardy.
The 34-year-old, who played five matches before the forced break, has praised Italy for the measures implemented.
“Italy has given a great example to the world, in England people still go to work and I saw greedy scenes in the supermarket,” he told Corriere della Sera.
The former Manchester United captain has revealed that he is “a little” scared about getting ill and insisted that football doesn’t matter right now.
“A little, yes, but the situation has been managed well,” he added. “And then, nobody likes isolation, but we rediscover the affections, the family we never have time for.
“There’s a pandemic out there, football doesn’t count. There are people dying.”
