The Wolverhampton Wanderers have banned their players from making food purchases in an effort to protect them from being infected with COVID-19.
Large parts of England are in a deadlock as cases have risen across the country in December.
Cases have resumed appearing in various clubs, with Manchester City confirming four on Friday.
This has made the Wolves club stop shopping in the markets for their players.
“It’s about defending yourself,” said Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
“From the beginning of the pandemic, our kitchen staff put together a big box of basic things we needed, and during the high point of the pandemic, everyone had it.”
“As it started to improve, we said, ‘Okay, now you’re free to go and do your shopping.’ But now the levels are rising and there is a new change that everyone is worried about, we started doing it again. “So the players and their families are not going to the supermarkets.”
“It has to do with self-defense. “There are so many people who care about us.”. / Telegraph /
