Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have put old rivalries aside to help the public battle the coronavirus with ‘five key tactics’,

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced new measures on Monday to combat the spread of covid-19 and urged the British public to avoid large social gatherings at the pub, theatre or other live events, while the elderly were warned they face up to 12 weeks of isolation.

The Premier League has been postponed until early April and is very likely to be delayed further as the United Kingdom is not yet at the expected ‘peak’ of the pandemic.

In times like these it’s more important than ever for society to come together and if Mourinho & Wenger can let dogs lie, then so can the rest of us.

The pair clashed several times during their rivalry in England but the duo have joined forces in a video released by FIFA today which includes useful tips for those during the COVID-19 outbreak.

‘Hello everyone, we all know the situation with the coronavirus is a serious one and we need to put health first,’ said Wenger.

‘These are the five key tactics to tackle the coronavirus and I urge you all to follow with discipline at all times these five key tactics

‘In terms of social interaction take a step back, said Mourinho.

‘Stay one metre distance minimum from everyone that coughs or sneezes.

There was also an appearance from former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Mourinho replaced Pochettino at Tottenham, while the Argentine was also heavily linked with a move to Arsenal after Unai Emery’s departure.

The former Espanyol boss heeded similar warnings about the virus, urging everyone to wash their hands.

‘It starts with your hands. Please was your hands frequently, if possible, with an alocohol-based solution,’ said Pochettino.
