Troy Deeney, whose baby has had breathing difficulties in the past said he does not want to expose his baby. He expressed his concerns about the increased risk to Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) players.

According to the observations from the Office for National Statistics, blacks are nearly twice more likely to die from the virus than whites from English and Welsh descent.

On a YouTube show hosted by Eddie Hearn and Tony Bellew, Troy Deeney said: “It only takes one person to get infected within the group, and I don’t want to bring that home.”

“My son is only five months old, he has had breathing difficulties, so I don’t want to come home to put him in more danger.”

“We are due back this week, but I have said I’m not going back in,” Deeney added.
