Revealed, How Premier League players are talking about their coronavirus fears

Premier League players are using a WhatsApp group to talk about their fears ahead of a return to work reports the Daily Mail.

The government has given the Premier League the go-ahead to resume from the start of next month and the organisers are targeting a return to action by mid-June.

However, not everyone is on board with the idea of starting amidst the coronavirus pandemic, especially the players.

The pandemic is still ravaging the world, but the Premier League is intent on finishing this campaign in time so they can preserve the footballing calendar.

The government’s go-ahead is because they feel that soccer would help boost the mood of the nation, but the players think that their welfare is being sacrificed for the good of the nation.

The report claims that some top players have opened a WhatsApp group, and they have been talking about their fears of getting infected with the virus.

Premier League clubs have been asked to discuss the restart with their players and get back to the authorities with their fears.

One player that has been quite open about his fears is Tyrone Mings of Aston Villa.

The defender and some players in the teams struggling with relegation feel that their fears are being ignored because the authorities just think they are just worried about getting relegated.

    I have read not one but numerous players have expressed their obvious concerns in a restart, which i have not heard or read from official government parrafinali, only tabloids. How can something be played where social distancing is impossible and logistically a non starter. Aguero, Rudiger, Rose are just a small number of players not happy with the thought of being involved in a match of any sort because they know it is not safe for them and their families. It will be futile to put people’s lives at risk and i believe the government, who have said sport must adhere to and be able to follow the guidelines laid out, will find it hard to justify football meeting the rules. Players for one cant be kept safe while playing and they know it.

      Jon people miss and want football back but the truth is, it is not safe, it is not moral, it is against advice and until we can get football back with cowds and atmosphere safely, it isn’t football. I want to go on Holiday but i will have to wait until its safe and i can actually go on holiday, abroad, without the possibility of being tested, quarantined, infected or any other obstacle. Its just not a holiday and football is just not football at the moment. Why do people want a sterile, totally detatched game of football, that could actually end up killing someone, is beyond me. I do actually think the players may stop it anyway.
