Reece James, Hector Bellerin team-up with three other players to set up fund to fight Coronavirus

Chelsea youngster Reece James has teamed up with Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin and three other Premier League players to raise funds in aid of the Coronavirus victims. 

Under Football United banner, the two, alongside Manchester United's Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Crystal Palace's Andros Townsend and Bournemouth's Callum Wilson, aim to raise  £100,000 for the National Emergencies Trust.

The funds will support the elderly and vulnerable people that have been impacted by the virus, which has killed thousands across the world. 

A partial statement on behalf of the players read: "Football has such a big role to play in communities and our clubs are a huge part of people's lives.

"Without football, we want to put our rivalries aside and show togetherness at such a critical moment for the country. These are uncertain times for communities, but as players, we want to show some recognition for the incredible work that is being done for the most vulnerable.

"There are so many people at home who are afraid, alone and without full-time care. With the nation's help, we can show our support to the many volunteers and organizations who need funds to make sure vital food and medicine supplies will continue to be delivered during the crisis.

"As players, we would love nothing more than to be out there playing in front of packed stadiums again, but that can wait - the most important thing right now is the future of the country and #FootballUnited is our way of showing some community spirit," 

They become the latest to join the growing list of players helping to alleviate the pain caused by the virus, which continues to terrorize the world.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robert Lewandowski, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Wilfried Zaha are some of the players who have contributed to this noble cause.
