English Premier League (EPL) squads returned to non-contact training on Tuesday as the English top-flight took another step forward in ‘Project Restart’. They resume to yesterday Tuesday after the Project Restart meeting with all the EPL clubs although some players are not yet in support them resuming just yet.
The English Premier League (EPL) hopes to restart its league on the 12th of June, having been suspended since 13th of March due to the coronavirus pandemic. The easing of government restrictions have allowed players to train in small groups, with all 20 clubs unanimously agreeing to stage one of the return-to-training protocols on Monday.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said that was the first step in a return to normality. “I always said we don’t want to rush anything, but I don’t think it is rushed. I hope that we are now in England on the right side of the thing. It’s all about when – but you need to re-open different parts of life again,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website.
“Everybody agrees about that. I think the way how we do it now with the Premier League, it’s now a good moment to do it for the football teams.”
