    Luke Shaw praise on Bruno Fernandes.

    Speaking during a Combat Corona live FIFA tournament on Twitch, the left-back was asked about Fernandes’ impact, saying: “He’s been amazing for us.

    “The maddest thing is he hasn’t actually been there that long but what he’s brought in and the quality he has – of course on the pitch – but inside the dressing room as well. He’s a leader for us too.”

    Sea Dyche has blasted Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s remarks about footballers as a “massive generalisation”.

    Hancock called on Premier League players to give up a percentage of their wages to help the battle against coronavirus.

    But Burnley boss Dyche told talkSPORT: “Players do their bit. I know for a fact individual players are already doing stuff from their own pocket, for different situations, as are a lot of people.

    “If they’d done all that and someone comes in and says they are taking more, they’ll say, ‘Hang on a minute…’ You have to be careful.

    “A lot of people are giving a lot at the moment. Whether it’s time, energy, effort, money, we are all behind the NHS in hopefully making this go away.

    “People must remember, footballers pay vast amounts of tax. We all do.

    “It’s fine, not a problem. But behind that, everyone has their own version of responsibility.”

    FA boss Mark Bullingham has laid out the bleak future facing the governing body.

    The FA’s chief executive confirmed SunSport’s story yesterday that the organisation’s losses due to the coronavirus crisis are certain to be over £100million — and could even reach £150m.

    He said: “We’ve taken an immediate and significant financial impact due to the postponement of England internationals, Emirates FA Cup matches and Wembley events, and there is currently no clear timescale on when they will return.

    “The total financial impact is currently forecast to be around £100m, but it could easily exceed £150m depending on the duration of the Government’s necessary medical measures.

    “Along with many other organisations across the country, we are currently reviewing our financial model during this challenging period.

    “We want to take prudent and appropriate steps to help protect and support the FA and our employees during this unpredictable time.”

    Axel Tuanzebe revealed that he is in constant contact with his United team-mates.

    He told the Manchester Evening News: “We can reach each other, a bit of banter and stuff. So it's good to have that camaraderie still going. We're a close group, so the group chats are always flying every day.

    “Everyone just chips in here and there, it's more so now about training with a bit of competition, people putting in what they've been doing. So everyone's chipping in and everyone's getting involved, which is good.”

    Axel Tuanzebe has lifted the lid on what boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told him before the club went into coronavirus lockdown.

    Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, the defender said: “The manager sent me a message that just said: 'Stay training and keep working and, we don't know when we'll be back, so we don't want any surprises, because there are talks and rumours of how many games.

    “So just be healthy, stay fit and maintain good hygiene.

    “The club has been very supportive and provided plans for training and nutrition to oversee this period and we do have group chats – FaceTimes, videos of us training.

    “And we have our own Instagram page that we follow to sustain and keep up to date with what's going on with the new training.
