With the current COVID-19 global health crisis, we are all being urged to stay at home, and only leave our house when we need to do essential shopping or travel to work, if absolutely necessary. The majority of football competitions have been suspended until further notice, in order to protect each other, as well as the frontline health workers in every country. The message is simple, stay at home to stop the spread of COVID-19 and take the pressure off of the health system.

Over the years, there have been numerous footballers who decided to ‘stay at home’ and be loyal to their boyhood club. This sort of gesture does not only take great loyalty but also dedication, as some of these players faced many challenges along the way, whether that was competition for their place in the team, a new manager who perhaps did not initially like them, or there were numerous temptations to leave and join new clubs.
