Southgate says focus is to look after our families
"For everyone in our country, the primary focus of the present - and the coming months - is undoubtedly to look after our families, support our communities and work together to come through what is clearly the most extreme test that we've faced collectively in decades," wrote the England football team boss in a letter published by the BBC.
Southgate sympathizes with those who lost loved ones
He also sympathized with people who lost their loved ones.
"On behalf of all the team and staff, I would like to take this opportunity to send our sympathies to those who have lost loved ones already. Our thoughts are with you and with those who sadly will suffer similarly in the coming period."
Earlier, the Euro 2020 was postponed to 2021 and Southgate backed the same.
"To play in a European Championship next summer will still be possible for all of our squad and so we shouldn't spend another moment thinking about the postponement of the competition. I feel sure that, when that moment comes, I will never have been prouder to be the leader."
The coronavirus pandemic has caused a worldwide catastrophe with all sport being cancelled or postponed. The deadly virus has claimed more than 10,000-plus lives already with numbers increasing drastically day by day.
