Ashley Young is currently plying his trade at Inter Milan in Italy - the worst-affected region in Europe.
Italy-based Ashley Young has given his advice on staying safe during the coronavirus crisis. The 34-year-old left Premier League giants Manchester United to join Serie A side Inter Milan in the January transfer window.
In a twitter post on Tuesday, the former England winger revealed a series of steps people in the UK should follow to prevent the widespread of the virus.
Football in Italy has been suspended until at least the 3rd of April and the country is in lockdown.
Young, who spent eight and a half years at Old Trafford, concluded: "Most importantly, just stay safe! This is what we are doing here, it's not an overreaction, it's staying safe. "And just remember others should be looking at you in this way as well. It's not horrible, it's a way of keeping your distance to ultimately help save lives."
