Watford full-back Adam Masina has criticised Prime Minister Boris Johnson for his response to the coronavirus outbreak.

In an interview with Corriere dello Sport, the Italian defender spoke of his worry after three people from the club were tested for the coronavirus outbreak, including goalkeeper Ben Foster.

While Masina was not affected himself, he said he is still worried by the situation.

"They didn't test me, only those who had symptoms. Luckily they all came back negative, something that made me breathe a sigh of relief.

"My family is fine, but at the moment we are living with such apprehension, so much so that we are isolating ourselves at home in order to avoid the virus."

Adding to Masina's worry is the British government's response to the pandemic, which was criticised by head coach Nigel Pearson just last week.

Masina echoed Pearson's worry and said that he did not feel reassured by the effort, or words, of Boris Johnson.

“Of course we are worried, above all for the scarce measures taken so far by the English government, which truly endanger everyone, the young and the old," he said.

"It affects me a lot, even more so now that I’m a father. 'Get ready to lose your loved ones' what kind of statement is that? I don’t understand what games he’s playing.

“Here in the UK they have underestimated it. Or they don’t care, I don’t know. I hope it won’t be too late when they realise the seriousness of the situation."
