Frank Lampard Says Premier League Should Only Return When It Is Safe For Players

Chelsea’s manager-in-charge, Frank Lampard has stressed that football in England must only return when the league can assure complete safety of players. It is notable that Premier League is aspiring a June 12 return after being suspended for almost two months due to the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic.

For the same, all the Premier League clubs resumed distant training from May 18 this week. However, some players have also refused to train as they feel it is not safe for them amid the COVID-19 crisis to head to the training grounds. One of them is Chelsea’s midfield maestro, N’Golo Kante.

“The feeling that you might be involved in a relegation battle or towards the top of the league, I think that is probably… we all felt that when we finished, we were so into it. But we have seen much more important things in the country and the world than football happen and I think that has been a bit of a reset for all of us,” Lampard added.
