Tottenham attacker, Lucas Moura, has admitted that he’s worried about the welfare of his family back in Brazil amidst the global coronavirus pandemic.

The footballing calendar was suspended two weeks ago as the UK government stepped up its efforts to deal with the spread of COVID-19.

There have been over 350,000 confirmed cases of the virus around the world, with the total fatalities now crossing the 15,000 mark (worldometers.info).

Moura’s home country of Brazil has been hit hard with over 1600 Coronavirus cases and 25 deaths being reported so far.

The Spurs forward admits that the situation is nothing like he’s ever experienced before and that he’s in constant touch with his family back home.

Speaking to the Sun (as relayed by the Daily Star), Moura said: “I speak to them every day, just saying the same things, to stay at home, to take care.

“Of course, I am worried about my parents because for older people, it’s worse. I think about them all the time.

“I’ve never seen a situation like this. It’s strange for everyone, different for everyone, but we need to stay positive, follow the rules, stay at home.

“I’m sure we will pass this and come back to normal. We need to stay safe, to follow the rules and I’m sure we will pass this moment quickly.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

The thing that is clear about the situation we find ourselves in is that we are all in this together. The better all of us cooperate and follow government recommendations, the more lives we can save and the quicker we can recover from this terrible situation. The less people cooperate, the longer it is going to take for us to get out of this mess.
