Premier League clubs have agreed to resume contact training. This happens when four more players / backstage teams tested positive for Covid 19 on Wednesday. The decision to return to contact training it was based on consultations from clubs, officers, PFA, LMA and government.
BBC Sport report that more than 1,000 players were tested in the third round of testing, which resulted in four positive tests coming back. The Premier League issued a statement confirming the news that contact training will resume. They said that "the second phase of the & # 39; restart of the project & # 39; will see players" training as a group and engaging in confrontation, minimizing unnecessary close contact ".
So far, 2,752 tests have been performed with only 12 positive tests. However, the Premier League will require that players and staff still need to be tested twice a week to detect the virus. In addition, there will also be an increase in testing capacity per club from 50 to 60 tests. Clubs started contactless training last week for the first time since March 13. The BBC says clubs will meet on Thursday to discuss the use of neutral stadiums for games. He will also discuss what will happen if the season ends and vote for discounts for broadcasters.
This is a good step, as it is closer to recovering football correctly. The next stage after the contact stage will allow clubs to hold 11 x 11 games and train close contact. However, the only question I would have to ask is: what happens when a player is positive, does this mean that the whole team needs to be quarantined, considering that the player can have and is likely to be close to teammates. However, it may be that clubs have used GPS to track this in some way, given the technology used today.
Probably a few more weeks to go for full football and we may not be able to see the Premier League final. However, this is a step in the right direction.
