Gremio players are protesting against the Brazilian Football Confederation for having to play matches even though the coronavirus is spreading rapidly in the South American nation. In a match that happened yesterday, players walked onto the pitch wearing face masks as an act of protest. The club manager, Renato Portaluppi said, “The whole world has stopped – shouldn’t Brazilian football stop as well? That’s our message and I hope they listen. We hope that good sense will prevail.”
