Former Arsenal player, Jack Wilshere has raised safety concerns over the return of the Premier League, otherwise called the Project Restart plans.
English Football returns in June after 2 months break due to the coronavirus pandemic that has ravaged the world. Nine fixtures are scheduled to take place from Saturday to Monday behind closed doors, and players will be staying in quarantine hotels and subjected to lots of medical tests before and after the games, but despite all these measures, Wilshere still doesn’t believe it is possible to observe social distancing on the football pitch.
‘No player will go back if it’s not safe to do so, I can’t see how you can play football and social distance at the same time. These are the questions that people need to ask and need to be answered. It’s as simple as that.’ He told Sky Sports.
