Coronavirus: Willian: Players are uncomfortable about resuming play

Chelsea Forward Willian says premier league players are concerned about returning to playing again amid the Coronavirus pandemic still ravaging the UK.

The Premier League season was halted in March as COVID-19 unsettled the UK but now in May, Over 34,000 has died up to date.

The Blues attacker spoke to the Evening Standard and He was quoted as saying: "Honestly, from what I can see, a lot of players – the majority, I’d say – are uncomfortable with the idea of returning right now," 

“We’re really keen to return, we really miss playing and doing what we love. But it needs to be safe for us to do so. That’s how we’re looking at it. Our health has to come first.

“So right now, players don’t feel comfortable with the idea of returning until it’s totally safe to do so.

“Our squad has spoken a lot over the internet, via different apps, and we’ve had some meetings too. Lampard has sent us information about what the Premier League wants to do.

“We still don’t know how things are going to play out, moving forward. Hopefully, we’ll know in the next few days. The Premier League is going to have a meeting and then they’ll inform us about the next steps.”
