Some Premier League club doctors express Project Restart concerns
According to Sky Sports, four Premier League club doctors have expressed their concerns over the Project Restart initiative.
The league presented the draft to all 20 sides last week and asked medical staff to provide feedback. Some have responded with a number of questions which will be discussed during a crucial meeting between the top-flight’s shareholders on Monday.
The PL’s most senior medical officers are yet to agree on whether it is safe to resume the season in the near future.
The league’s senior figures remain committed to finishing the campaign and plan to restart it on June 8, with the remaining games played behind closed doors at neutral grounds.
However, the next step will be highly dependent on the results of prime minister Boris Johnson’s lockdown review briefing on Sunday.
Should the government greenlight the Project Restart, the post-coronavirus schedule could have quite a bizarre look as there is a chance that the next season will start before the current one comes to an end.
