MANCHESTER - Watford striker Troy Deeney says his family has suffered personal and online abuse after his decision not to return to training last week. Deeney has declined to take part in the resumption of training, after the stoppage due to the coronavirus pandemic, citing his son’s breathing difficulties.

"In a time where it's all about mental health and everyone says: ‘Speak up, speak out, please speak,’… For example, Danny Rose spoke out, and I spoke out and we just get absolutely hammered and battered for it," Deeney said in an interview with CNN Sport.

"It's not just us that gets it. My missus gets direct messages and you'll be walking down the street and people will be like: 'Oh, I'm at work, you go back to work'," he added.

“My concerns were purely for family reasons. I have a five-month-old son who's got breathing difficulties. So, for me, I needed more questions answered, with a bit more authority and at the start, they couldn't really do that," Deeney said.

Deeney has now got access to more information.

"I've been fortunate enough to speak to Professor Jonathan van Tam, who works with the government," he said.

"He's been doing very, very good research and a lot of good will on his part to tell me, ultimately, that I'm going to be looked after, as best as they can.

"And ultimately there is going to be some form of risk for all of us going back to work," Deeney added.
