The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in the suspension of European football, and Cresswell is in no hurry to play again.
While he knows that he may not suffer if he gets the virus, he has a five-week-old daughter.

"Their squad went into isolation and then that was pretty much it. There was no other option. Football had to be suspended.

"Football can wait. Simple as that.
"I've got a baby daughter and she is five weeks' old and, I'll be honest, I'm petrified."
