Ryan Giggs has given UEFA his full backing in the decision to make postponements and delays to football.

Former Manchester United star and current Wales boss Giggs believes that UEFA has made the right call.

The European governing body for football has put the Euro 2020 summer tournament on hold for one year. Now they have postponed the Europa League and Champions League indefinitely.

This action has been taken in light of the coronavirus pandemic gripping the world.

Giggs spoke to Sky Sports about the decision and insists putting everyone’s health first is the priority and UEFA has made the right call.

He said:

“UEFA made 100 percent the right decision postponing the Euros.”

“For international managers, it is always a difficult time after the November games because you don’t see the players until March.”

“Obviously, that is going to be even┬álonger now.”

“But that comes second to everyone’s health and well-being and making sure everyone is healthy.”

“Then we can get back to the business of football and sport in general which gives so many people a rest from everyday life.”

“We just hope it comes sooner rather than later.”

“But, first of all, let’s get rid of this virus and get on with our normal lives again.”

Giggs and former teammate Gary Neville have been actively involved in the fight against COVID-19. The pair have given total free access to their hotels for hospital staff during the pandemic.
