Clubs in the English Premier League are scheduled to hold another conference call this morning, May 18, 2020, as plans are being made for the restart of the 2019/2020 season.
Among other things, this morning’s meeting is expected to see clubs voting to allow training to resume.
If majority clubs vote in favor of the move to return to training, clubs are expected to hold their training sessions in small groups with strict Social Distancing measures in place.
And depending on the outcome of today’s poll, clubs could return to training from May 19, 2020, according to reports.
An agreement is expected between Premier League officials, medical experts and clubs today.
A vote is required to implement the first phase of training – small groups with social distancing – and nothing more advanced, reports Skysports.
The League is expected to resume on June 12 but Newcastle United’s manager, Steve Bruce, has signaled that players won’t be fit enough until the end of June.
Manchester City’s player, Raheem Sterling, has also raised concerns about players’ safety with the return of the league.
Reports say at least some 14 clubs must approve the new safety measures to ensure the return of the League.
If the majority of clubs agree on Monday’s conference call, players can return to a sterile non-contact environment later in the week, according to report.
