Ghanaian international Bernard Mensah has expressed his fear over the risk that coronavirus poses as Turkish Super Lig continues.
In a tweet, the Kayserispor attacking midfielder interrogated the logic by the league organisers for continuing with normal activities despite Turkey recording at least 98 cases.
"Life is the most important thing on earth .. it's a serious thing going on and they always insist on continuing. Do they really care about us? ", Says the Kayserispor player on Twitter.
Life is the most important thing on earth .. this is serious thing happening and they still insist to continue do they really care about us ?. 🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️— Bernard Mensah (@oliver_mens) March 17, 2020
Despite his fears, Mensah played on Saturday providing two assists as Kayserispor beat Malatyaspor 2-1 in a league game.
On Saturday, former Nigerian John Obi Mikel expressed his reservation on continuing with the game amid the pandemic. He refused to play and on Tuesday terminated his contract with another Turkish side Trabzonspor.
