Manchester United legend Gary Neville has shown his humanitarian side alongside Red Devils teammate and business partner Ryan Giggs.

Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs have made the decision to make their two hotels in Manchester available for health workers as they continue to battle the dreaded Coronavirus.

NHS (National Health Service) staffs have been given the two hotels co-owned by Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs at no cost.

Through their GG Hospitality Group, the two former Manchester United players co-own Hotel Football and The Stock Exchange in Manchester.

Gary Neville announced the new development via a video posted on social media earlier this week.

West London giants Chelsea had also made their Millennium Hotel available for NHS staffs at no cost as the world continues to battle against the dreaded Coronavirus.

The Millenium Hotel is located at Stamford Bridge.

Coronavirus has been a stumbling block to several activities over the past weeks and it has also led to the demise of a lot of people. The viral disease originated from Wuhan in China before spreading to a lot of cities across the world especially in Europe and Asia.

The dreaded virus has promoted European football governing body UEFA to postpone the 2020 European Championship initially expected to take place between June and July later this year.

The competition will now be played at the end of next season.

The postponement of the tournament was confirmed by UEFA earlier this week. UEFA had little or no choice than to postpone the tournament to allow leagues to finish their season.

Several leagues in Europe have been abandoned as a result of Coronavirus, while continental club competitions like the Champions League and the Europa League have also been put on hold.

The Champions League is at the last 16 stage, just like what’s obtainable with the Europa League.
