Gurney on mindset during enforced break due to Coronavirus: "I’ve got time now to practice solidly and have a clean slate when we return"
Daryl Gurney is another player who has told fans to stick to the advice of staying at home during the Coronavirus outbreak during a recent interview with Colossus Bets.
Gurney is back in Northern Ireland with his family and spoke in the interview about how it is effecting him; as well as regarding the Premier League which he sits bottom of currently.
He hopes that now with this enforced break he can play himself back into form ahead of the end of the Premier League season and the packed darts calendar which is likely to come in the second half of this year.
“These are obviously weird times for everyone. But people need to listen to the advice and stay at home," said Gurney.
“I really hope they do because the sooner we stick to advice, the sooner life will get back to normal. No one has been through this sort of situation before. I think people will learn to appreciate how life has been after this. To have freedom and be able to work is actually a privilege and I think we are all learning the hard way.”
“It’s also really bizarre not to have any sport to watch either. Life is really boring without sport so we need it back as soon as possible!”
“I felt the results would come. I had a very decent UK Open but ran into Michael van Gerwen when he was on fire in the semi-finals," continued Gurney. "I thought I could get results in Newcastle and Rotterdam to avoid getting eliminated but we’ll never know now."
“At some stage the Premier League will return I hope and I can have a fresh start. That might help me a bit, it might not. So much can happen within a week in darts, let alone months.”
“I’ve got time now to practice solidly and have a clean slate when we return, hopefully that will be soon but the health of people comes first before darts or sport in general.”
