​Ex-Chelsea, Arsenal midfielder Fabregas criticises French authorities

Former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is not impressed by French authorities in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Fabregas is currently with Monaco in Ligue 1, but the league is suspended due to the virus outbreak.

While Cesc is happy that players do not have to go play in such conditions, he believes the authorities can do a lot more to protect the public and slow the spread of the virus.

The 32-year-old told Spanish radio station Onda Cero: “Three or four days ago, I had to go to the supermarket to buy food for dinner. And to tell the truth, I did not like what I saw, in the sense that there were people without gloves, without masks, not respecting distances.

“In the fruit and vegetable department, there were people gathered, touching the food without gloves.

“I saw one person, without gloves, picking up and putting down food because he didn’t like it.

“We still have a lot to do.”
