Glenn Murray believes that the current suspension of the Premier League season has shown players from all clubs coming together as a collective.

He said, "Footballers are always in the community and trying to help. There will always be rivalry in football for the fans, but during these sorts of times everyone comes together. 

"As players it’s always been the case that you’ll come across somebody who knows someone or maybe an individual you’ve played with at a previous club. 

"At the moment everything that’s happened has brought us closer together, at all clubs."

Murray also praised the work that the Seagulls have done in the community in recent weeks, as well as during his time at the club as a whole.

"The club has always prided itself on the work it does in the community, certainly all the time that I’ve been here. 

"The club has come on leaps and bounds in recent years and we’ve maintained that connection with the local area."

Both Murray and skipper Lewis Dunk have been in ongoing discussions with the club’s hierarchy about wage reduction deals to help the club during the current crisis. 

The forward revealed that the talks have been beneficial in learning about how the current crisis has impacted more widely on the football club. 

"As far and me and Lewis are concerned it’s been a bit of an eye-opener, but it’s been really good.

"The talks that we’ve had with Paul Barber and Dan Ashworth have been very positive. It’s bringing the club together even more."
