Coronavirus: Is Rooney right about football guinea pigs?

Wayne Rooney has accused the government and football authorities of treating footballers as "guinea pigs" during the coronavirus outbreak. This comes as elite football in Britain is suspended until at least 3 April. Ex-Premier League goalkeeper Rob Green, former Chelsea and Everton winger Pat Nevin and Ben Haines from 90min join Steve Crossman to react to Rooney’s comments. The panel also reveal what they would be doing during self-isolation. Plus, as it’s confirmed that Jan Vertonghen's family were held at knifepoint while he was on Champions League duty with Tottenham, Pat and Rob reveal the dangers footballers face off the pitch. Ben also gives us an insight into the Lionesses camp, after a disappointing result in the SheBelieves Cup.
