Brighton striker Murray confident junior football will remain strong

Brighton striker Glenn Murray is confident junior football will remain strong after the coronavirus shutdown.

Murray is confident the goal will remain the same.

He said: “It is pretty innocent as young boys.

“You play football, you enjoy it, you want to play in front of crowds, you want to score goals in front of people.

“That's the dream. It's not about everything that goes with it, it's not the finances.

“Yes, that is very nice and it makes life good.

“But that isn't the reason five, six, seven, eight-year-old boys get involved.

“Maybe more so now, parents might push them into it for those reasons. Who knows? But for players from my day and age that wasn't the case at all."
