Yesterday, the Premier League and all other professional sport received the green light to resume next month and now two football stars have spoken out on the possibility of restarting too soon.
Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling recently took to his YouTube channel to reveal he is “reserved” about football resuming.
In the video, Sterling says: “The moment we do go back it just needs to be a moment where it’s not just for footballing reasons, it’s safe for not just us but the whole medical staff, referees.
“Until then, I’m not scared, but reserved and thinking what the worst outcome could be.”
During an Instagram Live session with Don EE last night (May 11), Danny Rose also expressed his concerns about the return of the Premier League.
“Government is saying ‘bring football back’ because it is going to boost the nation’s morale,” Rose said. “I don’t give a fuck about the nation’s morale, bro, people’s lives are at risk.”
It’s clear the government’s plans to permit sport has divided opinion across the nation, with some thinking it could mark the beginning of a return to normality while others think it is still too soon.
