Not everyone in Belarus is pleased that the local football championship is going on according to plan, despite the pandemic of coronavirus in the world.
Belarusian journalist Barys Tasman criticized the football Federation of the country.
“In a situation when Belarus is increasing the number of victims and infected with coronavirus, the continuation of the national championship football looks at least irresponsible and dense cave. Needless to say, that in Europe, suspended all football tournaments – from continental to national, even the anniversary championship and the Olympic games postponed for a year. To guide the abff still nothing happens”?
“I appeal to the leadership of the Belarusian football Association to know your opinion on the mentioned reason. You feel responsible in front of hundreds of players, tens of thousands of supporters and just to fellow citizens? You know that Cup matches contribute to the spread of the deadly infection.”
“Igor Kovalevich, the head coach “Neman”, the only one who clearly, like a man, stated its position. He on the football field was a real man. And you to “chavales have Bulba”? Why were you elected? What questions would you decide? What is more important the lives and health of Belarusians? The money for the contracts received from 11 countries TV channels for broadcast of our League”?
“We, the journalists, the fans, and all who are somehow involved in the football, waiting for your reply. In this case, you will not be able to remain silent, for now silence is activity,” said Tasman.
Earlier Belarus has suspended Junior and youth Championships, however, the championship continues on schedule.
