‘You know you’re in the sh*t!’ Social media sees irony as Wuhan football team quits coronavirus-hit Spain to return HOME
Football team Wuhan Zall have cut short their pre-season training camp in Spain over coronavirus concerns – returning home to the country where the deadly infection originated.
The club’s decision to leave Spain for China – which is now seeing a gradual decrease in the number of new coronavirus infections – was met with a heavy dose of irony, with some noting that the situation in Europe must be “sh*t” if Chinese footballers think it’s now safer in Wuhan.
