UK Business Minister Thinks Too Early to Talk About Hosting Football Tournaments

LONDON (Sputnik) – UK business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng declined on Tuesday to confirm the likelihood that the United Kingdom will be hosting the entire European Championship football matches this summer, following an offer made by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

“I think there are days ahead, but I don’t think it would be right for me to speculate about football tournaments in three months’ time”, the minister told Sky News broadcaster.

According to Kwarteng, although everyone wants “things started” and the economy to be up and running as quickly as possible, the COVID-19 pandemic is still a serious issue.

“I think there is still a serious issue that we have with coronavirus, there is still people who are very ill”, he said.
