Gary Neville has warned the Premier League they need to quarantine players for the duration of the return to football and should hold a World Cup style event to finish the season. The Premier League moved a step closer to a restart yesterday when players voted to return to training in small groups.
However social distancing will still be in place and no contact is allowed until at least next month.
But the Premier League are hoping to copy the Bundesliga in getting back underway after it started this weekend.
But Neville thinks the Premier League may have to adopt a quarantine approach similar to his experiences at World Cups to reduce the possibility of infection.
Premier League chief Richard Masters floated the possibility of quarantining players ahead of games with the Bundesliga ordering players quarantined for seven days ahead of their opening matches.
But Neville thinks there are still huge risks involved and the best way to get the season done would be to quarantine for the whole period – to help protect families and from family members potentially exposing players if they’re not locked down as well.
