It is understood that teams from across the table are concerned with player safety and one team has told stars they do not have to play. One club who will be without key players should football return is Aston Villa, with manager Dean Smith explaining it’s down to health concerns. “If they’re not comfortable to return then you have to return without them until it’s safe to do so,” Smith began.“So we have to listen to our players, we have to listen to their concerns. “We’ve got a player who’s asthmatic, we’ve got a player whose mother-in-law is in remission and living with the family. “So you have to be very careful, certainly with the transmission, because this knows no boundaries.” The season will resume with no fans allowed in stadiums and there are a variety of other measures set to be put in place.

Clubs could be in favour of the move if they play at neutral venues, especially for creating a home-side buzz. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 But The Sun have reported that nearly half of the league’s teams have conceded forcing players back into action while the virus is active will be impossible. A source told the publication: “If someone has a partner who’s pregnant, or close family who has cancer, how can we force them to play in those circumstances?” Promoted Content10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoContemplate Life At These 10 Stargazing Locations7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The Universe6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A DroneLook At Something Beautiful That Wasn’t Made By A Human BeingA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic Bombs7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime8 Things To Expect If An Asteroid Hits Our PlanetTop Tastiest Foods From All Over The World11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table Top Loading… Up to nine Premier League clubs will let their players skip Project Restart over fears they could infect their families with coronavirus. England’s top division is looking at a return date of June 12 as they attempt to conclude this season. It has been reported by The Telegraph that teams won’t be allowed to swap shirts at the end of games for up to 12 months. Other rules will include no spitting on the pitch as well as not sharing water bottles. The Daily Mail have also suggested that an app letting fans send virtual noise will be used to generate atmosphere for games. It’s added that Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal have all held talks this week with a German tech company responsible for the crowd-imitating app. The app would allow fans to choose from one of four choices to create noise, ranging from cheering and clapping to singing or whistling.
“They are not bad people there. I wouldn’t say Southampton supporters are nasty, aggressive people. They’re not. They’re good supporters and they’ll give me a bit of grief but that’s life. I accept that. I will just get on with. I won’t lose any sleep over that. I will only lose sleep if the result is bad.” Anything but victory for QPR could prove disastrous for a side already seven points adrift of safety at the bottom of the Premier League. That is where Southampton ended the 2004-05 season under Redknapp but he insists he has a clear conscience. “Listen, no one was more upset than I was that the club got relegated that year,” he added. “When I went there were four teams cut adrift by miles and we just couldn’t get out of it. “I gave everything I had and that’s all you can do. You can look yourself in the mirror. No one tried harder than I did. You can only give your best at the end of the day. You are relying on players. I have said when I have been successful and done well at Tottenham, it is about good players. That is what the game is about. “If you’ve got good players, it is an easy game. You send them on the pitch and off they go. They perform week in, week out. It’s easy and the better players you’ve got the easier the job is.” QPR manager Harry Redknapp will not be losing any sleep over the hostile reception awaiting him at Southampton on Saturday, insisting he has no regrets ahead of his first return to St Mary’s. Saints suffered relegation from the Barclays Premier League eight years ago under the supervision of Redknapp, who then quit to re-join bitter rivals Portsmouth a matter of months later. That period still rankles with many Southampton fans, who will no doubt make their feelings known when he brings bottom side QPR to the south coast tomorrow. “Listen, I will get a bit of grief, won’t I? But what can you do? That’s no problem,” he said. Press Association
