SOCIAL DISTANCE: Should players be made to stop celebrating goals?

 

The Premier League and all forms of sport were halted immediately when the first national lockdown was announced in 2020.

After a brief hiatus, and amidst differing opinions of what should happen going forward, football returned in June 2020.

Testing was raised to prevent the spread of the virus so that sport could return.

During this current season, however, clubs have been forced to shut down their facilities including Aston Villa.

This has caused games to be postponed at late notice leaving a fixture scheduling nightmare in its wake.

In spite of all this, player celebrations have continued to be almost as normal.

There has been no social distancing after goals with players celebrating without staying two meters apart.

Some say that the players are tested and therefore know that they aren't infectious.

The others argue that footballers should set an example for the rest of the country as they are role models.

What do fans across the country think about the latest advice and should players be allowed to celebrate?
