The main plans for a safe return to football – which will be presented to players – will be finalized on Wednesday at a cross-sport meeting with the government.
For the second time after Friday’s first summit, a cross-sport delegation will meet with government officials and medical officials to work out guidelines.
And the talks are expected to include proposals on training and Premier League reboot, if Westminster allows, curated for essential feedback from the stars of the best flight.
Premier League officials want to give their players feedback before agreeing on project restart plans
The support of the players is crucial for obvious reasons. Some stars, including Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger, have raised concerns about the safety of a premature return.
However, a Premier League player, who did not want to be named, has told Sportsmail that he would like to get back on the field.
“Most players are eager to finish the season,” he explains. “There is an opinion that, as long as we are tested regularly, this shouldn’t be a problem. You’d be surprised how relaxed most players are about it. ‘
While health remains the priority, the financial impact – with significant end-of-year bonuses – will also be considered. But any restart is impossible without positive feedback from players.
