Wolves advise players not to visit supermarkets


Manager Nuno Espirito Santo desires the Premier League to present twice-weekly coronavirus tests for players and personnel.

Wolves have actually stopped their players from shopping once again with a new variation of coronavirus dispersing throughout the nation.

The Premier League club informed their players to secure themselves by preventing journeys to the grocery store during the first national lockdown in March.

And Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, who desires the Premier League to present twice-weekly Covid-19 tests for players and personnel with the infection rising in England, states the club has reacted by arranging shopping journeys for their whole squad.

“We have staff to go shopping and to the supermarkets for them,” Nuno stated ahead of Sunday’s home game with Tottenham.

” We have to prevent any type of threat due to the fact that we have a little squad and we have issues with some players out.

” We can not pay for to lose any player, we inform them every day ‘do not attempt and unwind to be more mindful’.

” Our cooking area personnel assembles a big box of the fundamental things that we need.

” During the high minute of the pandemic everyone had it. When the situation enhanced we stated to players ‘you are totally free to go and do your own shopping’.

” Today as the levels are increasing so high, and we have this new anomaly that everybody is so concerned about, we start putting this together once again. It has to do with securing ourselves.

“We are privileged as professionals in football, so many people take care of us. It’s impossible for (the rest of) society, everybody has to take care of themselves.”

Asked whether Wolves had actually handled extra personnel to handle the situation, Nuno responded: “No. As long as there’s goodwill there’s no short numbers.

“The kitchen staff, security, everybody helps. We have to stick together, as society, as a club, everybody has to help each other.”

Players and personnel at Premier League clubs have actually been checked on a weekly basis since the start of the 2020-21 season in September.

However screening at clubs in tier 4 locations will next month go back to the twice-weekly level utilized during ‘Project Restart’ in the summer.

Wolverhampton is currently in tier 3 and Nuno states he desires to see screening increased throughout the Premier League.

He stated: “Perhaps it’s needed. The levels of the infection rate is increasing a lot.

“Unfortunately yes – to go back to two tests a week. Just to avoid a potential situation of players arriving to the match not being able to play.”

However Nuno is not worried by Tottenham, who remain in tier 4 London where individuals are informed to remain at home and not travel outside the area, checking out Molineux.

“Absolutely no problems at all, I’m totally confident about that situation,” he stated.

“We know how strict we are with our protocols, and we are positive that all the clubs follow the same protocols.”
