England national team coach Gareth Southgate is angry that his first-team players Tammy Abraham, Jadon Sancho, and Ben Chilwell all attended a party during the Covid-19 red alert. A moment when the deadly virus is spreading really fast, these players risked being infected and they can possibly bring the virus to England’s national team’s camp.
Tammy Abraham, Chelsea’s striker has apologized for attending a party in England with teammates Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho. Apparently, the party was Tammy’s party, his family held a surprise party for him and his friends came.
Tammy Abraham’s 23rd birthday party led to a breach of coronavirus regulation, the party had more than 6 people there and now the FA is investigating the breach.
“On Saturday evening I arrived home to find a small surprise gathering had been organized for me with family and close friends to celebrate my birthday,” Abraham said in a statement to Sky Sports.
“Although I was totally unaware this was planned, I would like to wholeheartedly apologise for the naivety shown by all for the organisation and attending of this gathering.
“I recognize that I have a responsibility both in my professional and personal life to honor and respect the guidelines and deeply regret that this took place. All I can do now is learn from it, apologize to everyone and ensure it never happens again.”
Abraham, Chilwell, and Sancho will not join their England teammates at St. George’s Park on Monday while the party is investigated.
“However, as a precaution to understand if there is any risk to the wider group, the arrival of Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell, and Jadon Sancho will be delayed. This is to allow time to gather further information of a social gathering that all three players reportedly attended over the weekend,” the FA said.
England made a statement about the issue, see the post below.
