"Here, in England, they have recommended prudence and to try to be at home as calm as possible," the 37-year-old told Marca.

"It was crazy to [propose that the Premier League] keep playing, we have to take this seriously.
"Other countries which are more affected have already taken more radical measures and we have to follow this path. England can't cover their eyes and look the other way, the life and health of everyone is more important than sport.
"You have to have clear priorities in life and football is just a game and entertainment for people, the health of the people has to come first ahead of any other interest."
