According to Sundowns boss Yogesh Singh, the whole preparations for the tournament has now been put to a halt as the club is now concerned with the challenge at hand.

He confirmed: “Yes there were plans but right now all of that is on hold. Whatever plans we may have had are shelved now. Remember, there is no football, so we can’t even talk about that.

“We need to pause and forget about sports. Right now we are worried about the health and lives of people.”

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has made awesome donation of €1m to Hospital Clinic to help them in their research and the fight against deadly coronavirus.
