Manchester City: Fans fume at reported Premier League plans regarding player safety - Manchester City

A number of Manchester City fans have lashed out at reports of one possible measure to ensure player safety if the Premier League season resumes amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Telegraph claimed that, as part of the league’s Project Restart plans, captains and managers will be told to instruct their players to turn their faces away when being tackles to maximise their safety if matches are played during the summer. The update was shared on Twitter by @City_Chief.

According to Sky Sports, the majority of Premier League players are keen to resume training and playing as soon as possible, with players and managers set to meet with health experts today to discuss safe ways in which to potentially resume the season.

However, any agreements from that meeting would still need to be ratified by the UK government and Public Health England, both of whom would also need to approve of proposals on how teams can train safely.

Do you think the 2019/20 Premier League should resume or be scrapped indefinitely?
