Norwich City and Scotland star Kenny McLean admits it’s difficult to think about football just now.
Most leagues worldwide now are shutdown for the foreseeable as the globe battles a health pandemic. It’s left the Scottish football season up in the air as well as McLean’s Premier League campaign with Norwich.
The action on the park isn’t what’s on the minds of those at Norwich says McLean as he discusses the Canaries WhatsApp situation.
“Nobody has been really mentioning the football side of things,” he told PA. “The doctor has been added to the group chat and he has been basically keeping us up to date with everything and telling us what to do.
“That’s what our group chat consists of just now. We have been told to stay away and we have our individual programmes. It is hard to think about the position we are in and the games with Norwich and Scotland with the way things are going.
“When we got told to stay away I think everybody knew international games would be called off and then after a couple of weeks realised that the Euros wouldn’t be going ahead this year.”
The mindset of many?
Whilst everyone associated with football is eager for its return, surely they aren’t many thinking about that just now? It appears as if McLean certainly isn’t.
When we’re exposed to constant news, often worrying, about the virus, it’s hard to focus on anything other than that. In this instance, football has very much became secondary.
It’ll be a great day once it does return and we see the likes of McLean in action again.
