Pietersen feels that a successful vaccine and Arsenal getting relegated in next year would make up for all the chaos caused by coronavirus.
Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are currently 14th in the league standings, after 10 matches. They have won four fixtures, drawn one and lost five. The Gunners began their season on a positive note, but soon lost their footing. Star striker and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has also been reflective of his club’s form, scoring only twice in the league this season.
Arsenal face Rapid Wien in the Europa League in their next fixture. In the Premier League, their next opponent is Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.
Meanwhile, Pietersen’s favourite team Chelsea are third in the table after 10 games, They have won five matches, drawn four and lost one. Tottenham are on top of the table, followed by Liverpool.
Pietersen was a right-handed batsman and was also an occasional off spin bowler. He played for England in all three formats, and is also a former captain.
