Coronavirus: Premier League Players To Be Banned From Tackling In Training

Premier League players will be banned from tackling in training as part of ‘Project Restart’ amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Training pitches will also be disinfected and groups will be restricted to five players to help combat the spread of the virus.

League chiefs want top-flight stars back in action in June and have released a set of protocols for players to adhere to in training from Monday.

Social distancing must be “strictly observed” while items such as corner flags, balls and goalposts will all be disinfected after each session

According to the BBC, training will be a maximum of 75 minutes long and players can only transport themselves to the training ground.

Players will be tested for coronavirus twice a week while receiving a temperature check every day.

Also, the report further adds that players with underlying health issues such as asthma have raised concerns with the PFA over a return to action.

The Office of National Statistics also recently revealed how black people are more than four times more likely to die from Covid-19 than white people.

A number of players have criticised plans to restart the season by expressing their fear over safety.

One of such players is Danny Rose who is on loan at Newcastle United from Tottenham Hotspur.

Rose hit out at plans by saying on Instagram: “It’s a f****** joke, I’m not even going to lie.

“The Government is saying bring football back because it’s going to boost the nation’s morale, I don’t give a f*** about the nation’s morale.

“People’s lives are at risk, you know what I mean?”
