Dalglish wants a resumption of the Premier League season
Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish says the Premier League should try to restart the 2019/20 season. Despite the fact that the crisis had endangered his own life after he became infected.
The current Premier League season has been suspended since mid-March, but it is expected to resume in mid-June. After being given the green light by the British government.
English teams have already returned to training sessions in small groups this week. And are waiting for approval from the authorities to allow contacts between players during these sessions.
Although the Bundesliga has already resumed matches and the La Liga and Serie A are getting ready to return to the field of play also next month. The return of the Premier League this season amid the crisis has sparked much debate.
The Premier League has confirmed that six tests have come out positive from three league teams this week. Watford revealed that three of those players belonged to their club. Including defender Adrian Mariappa.
Meanwhile, players such as Newcastle United winger Danny Rose and Watford striker Troy Deeney have spoken out against the resumption of the championship. Saying they are feeling threatened.
However, Dalglish believes clubs can find a way to restart the season without compromising public health.
“If other countries are trying and coming back to the pitch. I think we’ll at least have to try.” the former Liverpool star and former coach told the Hat-Trick Podcast.
“Of course, we have to keep in mind that health and safety are very important for the players and for everyone involved.”
“You have to understand that, we will see what happens and see how we feel. Then let’s decide if we want to give up.”
Dalglish himself was infected, but did not show any symptoms of the virus.
