Missing football but health comes first

20 April 2020

Kieran Lee has told of his football frustrations but is completely mindful of the bigger picture around the country and the world.

The Wednesday midfielder is following his fitness routine to the letter but says working remotely is no substitute for the everyday work on the training ground.

And while Lee is itching for a return to Middlewood Road, he echoes the view that health and wellbeing must remain the priority:

“The current crisis puts everything into perspective. The first priority is everyone following the guidelines and hopefully the lockdown will have the desired effect.


“The health of everyone has to come first. Only when we get the green light to move to the next phase can we start thinking of football but right now the priority is everyone’s health and safety.

“Obviously as a footballer I am missing the game, missing the training and the lads. We all have our routines and we’re in contact with the sports science team every day.

“That’s a real positive but we all know the differences between general fitness work and training and playing games.

“So we’re in the hands of those who know best at the moment and as much as we all want to get back to training and playing, we have to be patient and wait until the time is right.”
