Premier League players join hands, set up fund to help in fighting Coronavirus

English Premier League players have joined hands to raise funds aimed at fighting the coronavirus pandemic. 

Under the 'PlayersTogether' banner, the players from various clubs have united to help the NHS in the fight against the pandemic, which has halted all basic functions globally. 

This comes amid continued discussions on how players can help fight the virus, which as claimed the lives of more than 90,000 people globally.

Arsenal's Hector Bellerin, Brighton's Glenn Murray and Shane Duffy were among the first players to share the agreement.

Only last week Britain's Health Minister Matt Hancock called on players to play their part by accepting wage cuts. 

Consequently, the Premier League resolved to apply a 30% wage cut on all players, as the world grapples with massive effects resulting from the pandemic.
